TOR @ ANA - 12:41 of the First Period

At 12:46 of the first period in the Toronto Maple Leafs/Anaheim Ducks game, the Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine Kyle Palmieri's shot at 12:41. Video review determined that Palmieri's shot entered the Toronto net. The stoppage at 12:46 occurred after Hampus Lindholm's shot also entered the Toronto net. According to Rule 38.6 "In the event that a video replay shows a goal was scored prior to the play being stopped, the Video Goal Judge will inform the Game Timekeeper and Official Scorer of the time and the amount of playing time left to be reset on the game clock and penalty time clocks (if applicable)." Therefore Palmieri is credited with a goal, Lindholm is not, and both the penalty clock and game clock are reset to the time when the original shot entered the net. Good goal Anaheim.

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Nick Foligno, who with Chicago Blackhawks forward Jonathan Toews were named team captains for the 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend on Jan. 24-25, joined NHL Live to discuss the captaincy and the event.

"It's a great honor," Foligno said. "I was pretty surprised by the news.

Being able to be in front of our fans it's going to be an awesome weekend."

Blue Jackets' Foligno honored to be All-Star captain

COLUMBUS -- Nick Foligno has picked players for a team before, but never on such a grand stage as NHL All-Star Weekend.

The announcement Wednesday that Foligno was selected as an All-Star captain, and thus gets to choose his teammates, brought back memories of his youth for the Columbus Blue Jackets forward.

"When I was a kid picking road hockey, Team Foligno, when I had my way because I was the oldest kid there," he said.

Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks and Drew Doughty of the Los Angeles Kings will be Foligno's alternate captains.

"Those are world-class players and guys I have a lot of respect for in this league," Foligno said. "Both are Stanley Cup champions."

Blackhawks center Jonathan Toews, the other All-Star captain, will be assisted by Anaheim Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf and New York Rangers forward Rick Nash, who played for the Blue Jackets from 2002-12.

Fantasy Spin: Dubnyk worth adding after trade to Wild

It's not a rosy picture right now in the "State of Hockey," but goalie Devan Dubnyk's improvement this season suggests he can give the Minnesota Wild a much-needed lift in net.

With starter Darcy Kuemper (56 percent owned in Yahoo leagues) on injured reserve and veteran Niklas Backstrom (33 percent owned) struggling, the Wild acquired Dubnyk on Wednesday in a trade with the Arizona Coyotes. Since Nov. 22, Kuemper's season has gone off the rails with a 4-7-1 record and four or more goals allowed in six of his 13 appearances. Backstrom has started the past four games for Minnesota with Kuemper out, allowing 16 goals.

Entering 2014-15, Dubnyk (20 percent owned) didn't have a winning record in any of his five NHL seasons. The statistical highlight of his career was a .920 save percentage in 38 outings during the shortened season of 2012-13. But a few months working with Coyotes goalie coach Sean Burke has done wonders for his stock, with this trade being primary evidence.

At the Rink: Maple Leafs at Ducks

ANAHEIM -- Toronto Maple Leafs forwards James van Riemsdyk and Leo Komarov each missed the morning skate Wednesday, but interim coach Peter Horachek did not rule out either player against the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center.

Each player took maintenance days, according to Horachek, though Komarov appears doubtful after leaving Toronto's 2-0 loss at the Los Angeles Kings on Monday with an upper-body injury. He worked out off the ice during practice Tuesday.

"We're hoping to have Leo, and James should be available," Horacheck said.

At the Rink: Devils at Kings

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Los Angeles Kings goalie Martin Jones did his part to earn another start, and it comes just in time to give goalie Jonathan Quick a rest.

Jones will make consecutive starts for the second time this season when the Kings play the New Jersey Devils at Staples Center on Wednesday. He was first off the ice after the morning skate.

Jones had a 19-save shutout Monday in a 2-0 win against the Toronto Maple Leafs, after he had allowed 10 goals on 36 shots in his previous two games. Kings coach Darryl Sutter dismissed the notion of Jones bouncing back and referenced managing his goalies to the All-Star break.

"We need both our goalies to win games," Sutter said. "We're giving Quick here another chance to get at least six or more days between games, and you need your other goalie to win games. It's not bounce back. They either win or you lose. If we had won the other night, then Quick would play tonight. It's not somebody ahead of the other."

At the Rink: Flyers at Capitals

ARLINGTON, Va. -- The Washington Capitals have employed a wing-by-committee approach on their first line under coach Barry Trotz.

When in need of physicality, Tom Wilson plays right wing with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom. Trotz has turned to Jay Beagle on the right side to provide two-way responsibility. In four games between Dec. 23 and Jan. 1 Trotz used four different first-line wings: Eric Fehr, Wilson, Jason Chimera (played on the left side and Ovechkin moved to right wing) and Beagle.

Lately Andre Burakovsky has assumed right wing alongside Ovechkin and Backstrom. Against the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday they will play together for the sixth straight game.

"He makes plays," Trotz said of Burakovsky. "He's pretty creative. Definitely he's done a pretty good job. His wall play has gotten better as the whole year's gone on. He's been pretty creative. He can make those high-skill plays like [Backstrom] can; maybe not to that extent yet, but the high-skill plays that he can make to [Backstrom or Ovechkin], so far so good. He skates very well for a young man."

At the Rink: Canadiens at Blue Jackets

COLUMBUS -- Montreal Canadiens right wing PA Parenteau will return to the lineup Wednesday against the Columbus Blue Jackets with no restrictions.

"Tonight's 100 percent for me with the power play and everything," he said.

Parenteau missed three games because of an upper-body injury and the Canadiens (26-12-3) lost the past two.

"It's a good feeling to get back," Parenteau said after practicing Wednesday morning. "You miss the game and you miss being with your teammates. I'm feeling pretty good on the ice. I'll know more when the game starts and the pace picks up."

Parenteau has six goals and nine assists in 38 games. He will play with new linemates Brandon Prust and Alex Galchenyuk.
