On Chicago's side of the puck, Marian Hossa is expected to remain out of action for two weeks with an injury to his left leg. The Rangers have earned points in their last ten home games (8-0-2), but lost to the Blackhawks 1-0 when the team last visited Madison Square Garden in March of last year. The goaltending matchup is a good one, to say the least:

Puck drops at 5 New York time.
So that makes it Henrik Lunqvist vs. Corey Crawford tonight at the Garden. https://t.co/lkEBqlv2Zf— Andrew Gross (@AGrossRecord) February 17, 2016
