Girgensons talks All-Star vote, Sabres hot streak

Buffalo Sabres center Zemgus Girgensons, the top vote-getter after three weeks of voting in the 2015 NHL All-Star Fan Vote presented by SiriusXM, joined NHL Live to discuss his path to the League and the Sabres' recent run.

Girgensons' 14 points in 27 games is tied for second on the Sabres. As of Tuesday, he earned 803,805 total votes to represent Buffalo on Jan. 25 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus.

"It's crazy," said Girgensons, a native of Riga, Latvia. "People back home are just crazy hockey fans. It's always been like that. It's fun, it's cool, it's mixed emotions, it's funny at the same time."

DeAngelo confident in chances of making WJC team

Sarnia Sting defenseman Anthony DeAngelo joined NHL Live for this week's Prospects Report to discuss his chances of playing for the United States at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship.

The United States' selection camp begins Dec. 16 on the campus of Boston University at Walter Brown Arena. DeAngelo is one of six NHL first-round picks to receive an invite to the preliminary roster.

"I feel pretty confident in myself," DeAngelo said. "The reason why they brought me in, I'm going to try to go out there and show them, and hopefully get a chance to make the team. I think it would be an honor to make the team but there's a lot of good defensemen, so it's going to be a tough roster to crack."

At the Rink: Panthers at Blues

ST. LOUIS -- Having played a combined 1,400-plus regular season and Stanley Cup Playoff games, Monday will be one of those rare firsts for St. Louis Blues goalie Martin Brodeur.

Brodeur, who spent his entire 21-year career with the New Jersey Devils before signing with the Blues on Dec. 2, will play his first home game when the Blues face the Florida Panthers at Scottrade Center.

Brodeur encountered this occasion one other time when the Devils played at the Meadowlands, so it's been a while in that regard.

"I'm looking forward to it; I think it's an advantage to play in your home building," said Brodeur, who is 40-16-2 in 65 career games against the Panthers. "Fans are always a big component and a reason the guys have success in their building. It'll be interesting to see how it is."

At the Rink: Devils at Maple Leafs

TORONTO -- The New Jersey Devils announced that right wing Jaromir Jagr and defenseman Adam Larsson will not play against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday because of the flu.

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello also said forward Patrik Elias will not play Thursday after sustaining a groin injury in a loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday.

Lamoriello said Jagr did not sustain a concussion on a hit by the Penguins' Robert Bortuzzo with 2:03 remaining in the second period of the Devils' game in Pittsburgh on Tuesday. Jagr did not return after the hit; Bortuzzo was suspended for two games by the NHL Department of Player Safety on Wednesday.

"Jagr was sick before the game the other night [in Pittsburgh]," Lamoriello said, according to "He does not have a concussion. We went through all the tests after the game, last night and this morning. He just can't go. He's completely dehydrated so we sent him back to the hotel."
