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."

At the Rink: Rangers at Kings

The New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings have not played each another since the 2014 Stanley Cup Final, and with the Rangers visiting Staples Center on Thursday seeking to avenge June's 4-1 series loss, they do so as the hottest team in the NHL.

New York defeated the Anaheim Ducks 4-1 on Wednesday to open up a three-game road trip. It was the Rangers' third straight win and 11th victory in their past 12 games.

"We've talked about it for the last couple of days," said Rangers forward Rick Nash, who scored the game-winner against Anaheim, after the game. "We've been talking about challenging ourselves and kind of getting a good measuring stick of where we're at. It's a huge win for us."

Devils forward Elias reflects on milestone evening

New Jersey Devils forward Patrik Elias joined NHL Live to discuss the milestones he achieved Tuesday during a 4-1 win against the Buffalo Sabres at Prudential Center.

Elias became the 80th player in NHL history to reach 600 career assists when he connected with Travis Zajac for a shorthanded goal that gave the Devils a 3-0 first-period lead. His assist on Mike Cammalleri's empty-net goal at 16:56 of the third made him the 82nd player to earn 1,000 points.

"Obviously it was a great night for me personally," Elias said. "It was a special evening. I'm glad it worked out with both of those milestones on the same night and it helped us, obviously, to get a win against Buffalo which we needed badly."

I mean, any of those 14 teams (in the lottery) it would have been an absolute honor. If I am selected by Edmonton it will be amazing, a dream come true. They have a lot of amazing young players there.
