Status of Tyler Johnson, Jimmy Howard in question

Tampa Bay Lightning forward Tyler Johnson and Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard were each selected to the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game, but are in jeopardy of missing it because of recent injuries.

Coach Mike Babcock said Howard has been ruled out of the game, according to an Associated Press report. Howard was injured in a game against the Washington Capitals when he stretched to attempt to make a save in the first period. On Tuesday, general manager Ken Holland said an ultrasound revealed a slight groin tear that will keep Howard out 2-4 weeks, according to MLive.com.

Johnson sustained an lower-body injury during a game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday. Coach Jon Cooper said Johnson will not play Tuesday against the Boston Bruins, but labeled him day-to-day and said there is a chance Johnson could play again before the all-star break. Including their game on Tuesday, the Lightning have four games remaining before the all-star break.

At the Rink: Blue Jackets at Maple Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs will have a new look to their second line, with Richard Panik playing right wing with center Nazem Kadri and left wing James van Riemsdyk on Friday against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

"Those players are really good on the puck," Panik told the Maple Leafs website. "So hopefully we'll get some chances and score."

Panik certainly would like to contribute offensively; he has one goal in his past 10 games. Playing with elite offensive talents like Kadri and van Riemsdyk certainly won't hurt.

"I think he [Kadri] can find you anywhere," Panik said. "I've got to be prepared for the pass from anywhere. I'm going to try to shoot the puck and try to make some scoring chances for him."
