Hockey is always a little bit better when two of the NHL's Original Six take the ice. This Wednesday (8 PM ET, NBCSN), it'll be the Chicago Blackhawks hosting the New York Rangers, as both teams try to move up the standings after getting off to a slow start this year. The Rangers (9-7-2 after 18 games) have already turned things around with six straight wins; the Hawks (8-8-2) are stuck in neutral at 3-3 over the same span.

Thanks to their recent form, New York has produced strong results on the NHL odds board, ranking third in the league at 8.01 betting units on a record of 11-7 against the puck line. Chicago is 1.42 units in the red at 8-10 ATS after teasing bettors with four wins in their first six games. Injuries haven't helped their cause; the Hawks have been playing without veteran forward Marian Hossa, who will miss the entire season with a progressive skin disorder.

Despite their struggles, the Blackhawks still find themselves in the third tier of Stanley Cup contenders at +1800 on the NHL futures market. The Rangers, who have a clean bill of health, are +2800 outsiders with room for improvement.
