Good evening ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the month of November in the National Hockey League! With three games on the slate this evening, all eyes are on the Big Apple as the New York Rangers host defending Stanley Cup Champions the Chicago Blackhawks.

I'll be bringing you live updates throughout the game as we gear up for an exciting night in Madison Square Garden. Just a few notes before we begin:

-Marian Hossa remains sidelined with injury and will not suit up for the Hawks tonight. Dave Bolland is also scratched with an upper body injury. He is listed as day-to-day.

-Conversely, Brian Campbell makes his return to the lineup and is expected to play significant minutes this evening.

-Marian Gaborik skated this morning for the Rangers, but is not expected to rejoin the team for another two weeks.

-Henrik Lundqvist and Marty Turco are slated to start in net for their respective teams. Lundqvist is coming off a shutout of the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. The puck is about to drop!
