Prediction

The Rangers have had some very tough games lately and won in overtime their last game against the Panthers but they have 2 days of rest. The Blackhawks are on a 7 game losing streak and have struggled to score averaging only 1.8 goals per game. The last time these teams met it was a high scoring game but with the Blackhawks struggling offensively I think the Rangers will win this game easy.
