The defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks visit New York on Monday in NHL betting for a matchup with the Rangers.

This game can be seen on the NHL Network and should be entertaining with both teams off to solid starts this season.  Get ready to make an NHL bet at the SBG sportsbook for this Monday game.

The Blackhawks have played 13 games already this season which is more than any other team in the league. That is one reason they lead the Central Division.  Chicago really hasn’t played championship hockey so far this season but they are above .500.  The Blackhawks are 12th in the league in goals scored and just 16th in fewest goals allowed.  If those numbers don’t improve then Chicago is not going to stay in first place.

Busy Month for Rangers
This is the busiest month of the NHL season for the New York Rangers as they have 16 games in November. New York played well in October but if they want to be a factor this season they will have to survive this month. It might not be easy since top offensive scorer Marian Gaborik is out. The team will also be without veteran winger Vinny Prospal and captain Chris Drury. Gaborik might be back sometime in the middle of the month but Prospal and Drury will be out longer. The latter part of the month will be a struggle for New York as they have 10 games in the last 17 days of the month.  Since it is a busy month the Rangers will need their backup goalie to play well. Henrik Lunqvist is a solid starter but backup Marty Biron is weak.
