Two of the Original Six teams square off Friday night as the Chicago Blackhawks host the New York Rangers

The Chicago Blackhawks will look to build on Tuesday’s 4-0 blowout win over the Arizona Coyotes, but will be faced with a far more formidable team in the New York Rangers (17-9-1). New York is downright dominant offensively this season, leading the league in goals per game and shooting percentage.

Blackhawks goaltender Scott Darling will need to bring his A-game if the ‘Hawks hope to stay in this one. Nothing says Friday night like an Original Six matchup featuring two teams leading their respective divisions.

To help with this matchup preview between the Blackhawks and Rangers, Blue Line Station’s own Brandon Cohen and Mike Monti provided some much-needed assistance. We here at Blackhawk Up cross enemy lines in this weeks’ Eye on the Enemy.

A big shoutout to Brandon and Mike for their help in providing a better look at what Friday holds for the Chicago Blackhawks ahead of the two teams’ first meeting of the season!
