First-period wrap: Rangers 1, Hawks 0
CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks trail the new York Rangers 1-0 after the first period at the United Center.
Both goalies were on their game in the opening 20 minutes as the teams exchanged some high quality chances. Ray Emery’s best save came on Marian Gaborik as he looked to have a tap in goal after a goal-mouth pass found him in the crease. But Emery went post to post to make the stop.
