Every Tuesday, The New York Times will look at the week ahead in the N.H.L., highlighting hot — or not so hot — teams and players.
Games to Watch
Minnesota Wild at Chicago Blackhawks, Tuesday, 8 p.m., NBCSN
Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane has scored a point in 19 straight games, compiling 11 goals and 20 assists in that span. He will go for his 20th in a row as Chicago returns home from a six-game Western trip. Sidney Crosby in 2010 was the last player to record a point in 20 straight games. Don’t get too excited about Kane breaking the N.H.L. record for point streaks, though. It is 51 games, set by Wayne Gretzky in 1983-84.
Rangers at Islanders, Wednesday, 8 p.m., NBCSN
