New York scored the lone goal in the second period when Marc Staal tallied from the point after a good shift by the Rangers. The teams exchanged several power play chances in the middle 20 minutes but neither could earn a special teams goal.
The Hawks had a long 5-on-3 chance after Brandon Dubinsky got called for two penalties on one play but the visitors could do no damage. The Rangers are 0 for 6 on the power play and have just 12 shots through two periods.
The Blackhawks are well ahead of the Rangers.
