New York Rangers Set To Watch The Banner Rise In ChicagoAt 33-years of age Henrik Lundqivst fully understands his chances to capture that elusive Stanley Cup Championship are dwindling each time he takes the ice.

After four years of coming oh-so-close, Lundqvist and the rest of the New York Rangers will take the ice tonight for game No. 1 of 82 of a brand-spanking new NHL season.

They’ll once again start the season in the home of the Stanley Cup Champions.

Just as they did last year in Los Angeles, they’ll watch the banner be lifted this season in Chicago.
