Surging Rangers Host Hawks Wednesday

Patrick Kane Chicago Blackhawks Henrik Lundqvist New York Rangers NHL

The New York Rangers basically have no chance of catching the Washington Capitals in the Metropolitan Division, but if they continue to play as hot as they’ve played in February, they’ll certainly be a team to look out for come playoff time.

Shark Bites
  • The Blackhawks are 8-3 in their last 11 games versus the Eastern Conference.
  • The Rangers are 4-12 SU in their last 16 games after a win.
  • OVER has cashed in nine of the Rangers’ last 11 games versus the Western Conference.

At online book Bovada, both the Blackhawks and Rangers are priced at -115 in moneyline markets. As far as the total is concerned, OVER 5 goals is -125 while UNDER 5 goals is -105.

The Rangers have gone 5-2 SU in the month of February and are coming off a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers in their last contest. Netminder Henrik Lundqvist has stopped 146 of 155 shots faced and has one shutout en route to a 5-1 record in six February starts.

The Blackhawks have been somewhat tepid (by their standards) in the month, winning their first three games and then losing three-straight before crushing the Toronto Maple Leafs 7-2 in their last game Monday.

The Hawks have been getting hot on the road as they bring a three-game road win streak into Madison Square Garden Wednesday night. They’ll be eager to get that Central Division lead back, but when Henrik Lundqvist is on his game, he is a tough goalie to beat.
