Chicago Blackhawks (18-14) vs
New York Rangers (21-13)

Time: 8:00 PM ET
Date: Wednesday, January 3, 2018
Where: Madison Square Garden, New York, New York
Watch on: NBC Sports Network
Odds: NY Rangers -130
Total O/U: 5½o (-117)

Chicago is slumping, just 1-3-1 in their last five and sitting at 18-14-6. Starting goalie Corey Crawford is on injured reserve and the team has allowed a ton of shots in their last three games. They gave up 31 in a 5-2 loss to Vancouver, 45 in a 4-3 OT win over Edmonton and 39 in a 4-3 OT loss to Calgary. That loss completed a run of three games in four nights, so Tuesday’s tilt makes it four in six, all on the road.

The Hawks do have a great feel-good story going for them, which is that Crawford’s replacement is Jeff Glass who is a 32-year old rookie set to make his third straight start.

The Rangers beat Buffalo 3-2 OT in the Winter Classic on Monday. They are 2-1-2 in their last five with four of the games going beyond regulation. They have scored 11 goals and allowed 12 over that period. Goalie Henrik Lundqvist is hot with a 2.19 GAA and .939 SV% in his last eight games.
