The fans at Madison Square Garden will be treated to a game between the Chicago Blackhawks and the New York Rangers when they take their seats on Tuesday.

ABOUT THE BLACKHAWKS (18-8-4): Chicago is missing its own marquee players — captain Jonathan Toews (back) has been out for the past nine games and defenseman Brent Seabrook (upper body) has missed the past two contests, matching his absences from the previous four seasons combined. While Seabrook plans to play on the upcoming road trip, Toews’ status remains unclear. “It’s a balance between pushing as much as you can but also knowing that mentally you need to either pull back … (so) you’re not adding more stress to whatever your injury might be.”

ABOUT THE RANGERS (20-9-1): A goaltending controversy in New York — Lundqvist is nicknamed “The King” — borders on blasphemy, but if Raanta gets the nod Tuesday, it would mark the longest stretch as a healthy scratch for Lundqvist since he was elevated to No. 1 in 2006-07. “Do I know who I’m going to start next game? Yes I do,” Vigneault said after Sunday’s victory. “But I haven’t told them.” Despite the absence of injured forwards Rick Nash, Mika Zibanejad and Pavel Buchnevich, Sunday’s 5-0 win matched the Rangers’ highest output since Nov. 21.

gtbets-sportsbook currently has the Rangers listed as 135-moneyline favorites versus the Blackhawks, while the game’s total is sitting at 5.

New York was a 5-0 winner in its last match at home against the Devils. They won as favorites, while the total score of 5 made winners of PUSH bettors.

The Blackhawks were a 3-1 winner in their most recent outing at home against the Stars. That made winners of bettors who got Chicago at -125 on the moneyline, while the total score (4) was good news for OVER bettors.

The New York Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks are each receiving superb play from their backup goaltenders over the past three games. New York’s Antti Raanta, who was named the NHL’s Second Star of the Week, bested Chicago’s Scott Darling in a 1-0 overtime victory on Friday night – a loss the Blackhawks look to avenge when they visit the Rangers on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.

Unlike Raanta, Darling was forced into the lineup after No. 1 netminder Corey Crawford underwent an appendectomy. Darling is 2-2-1 during a string of five straight starts — Chicago has scored twice in the three losses — and has surrendered two goals while winning two of his last three outings. Raanta, on the other hand, has kept New York starter Henrik Lundqvist planted on the bench, allowing one goal during the team’s three-game winning streak and posting back-to-back shutouts against the Blackhawks and New Jersey. “I love Hank (Lunqvist), but I love the team more,” Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said Sunday in explaining his decision to start Raanta again. “Antti is on top of his game.”
