Each Wednesday throughout the regular season, Kevin Weekes will be offering his pluses and minuses for the teams competing in the NBCSN Wednesday Night Rivalry game in his Weekes on the Web blog. Weekes also will assist fans with three must-watch elements of the game.

Chicago had a 4-1 lead against the New Jersey Devils on Sunday before allowing four goals in the second period of a 7-5 loss, has lost three of four and has eight wins in 18 games, very un-Blackhawk like. The Rangers have won six straight and have been bolstered by their offense and speed.
