NEW YORK - Scott Darling will get the start and Joakim Nordstrom will play when the Blackhawks face the New York Rangers tonight at Madison Squar


The puck had barely crossed into the Rangers’ zone when it was sent right back out again. It happened a few more times on that power play, as well as the ensuing one.


The Blackhawks knew they were going to miss a lot of things when they lost Patrick Kane (fractured left clavicle) for a few months.


At the beginning of the season coach Joel Quenneville was asked about the Blackhawks’ lack of scoring. It was early, and perhaps players were a little rusty. Quenneville wasn’t worried.
