The Chicago Blackhawks and New York Rangers probably rank as the two teams that came the closest to wrestling the Stanley Cup from the Los Angeles Kings last season. They look strong (yet different) in 2014-15, too, so this should be a delicious taste of what may come if things go well for each squad in the postseason.
Even with Patrick Kane and Henrik Lundqvist on the shelf, there’s plenty of star power on both sides, so expect an exciting game. You can watch the action on NBCSN and also by streaming it via NBC Sports Live Extra.
