The Metropolitan Division-leading Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-1 on Wednesday night, with two goals from Jimmy Vesey and third from Jonny Brodzinski. Barclay Goodrow contributed two assists for the win — New York’s third straight, and second since returning from the All-Star break.

Now New York is on the road for the first time this month against a struggling Blackhawks team with the worst record in the NHL. Chicago is 14-35-2 for the season with just 30 points, and coming off a 2-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild. They’ve lost five in a row.

When these teams squared off earlier in the season, the Rangers pummeled Chicago 4-1. Here’s how to watch the game.
