Busy night before All-Star break begins
The last night before the All-Star break is usually hectic, and this year is no different -- 18 teams are in action before beginning their midseason vacation.

The action begins with three games at 7 p.m. ET. Florida will try to build on Tuesday's 4-3 win at New York when it visits Boston, where the Bruins are home after Monday's 2-0 loss at Los Angeles. Carolina goes for the 1,000th win in franchise history when it visits the New York Islanders, 1-0 losers at Pittsburgh on Tuesday. Also, Atlanta will try to bounce back after Sunday's 7-1 rout at Tampa Bay when it hosts Washington. The Caps lost 2-1 in a shootout to the Rangers on Monday.

A half-hour later, Versus will be on hand in Detroit where the Red Wings host the red-hot New Jersey Devils, who are 6-0-1 in their last seven after a 5-2 win against Florida on Sunday. Detroit has been off since Saturday's 4-1 loss to Chicago.

Also at 7:30, Edmonton visits Dallas in a game that can be seen in Canada on TSN. The Stars are back home after a 7-1 loss at Vancouver on Monday.

At 9 p.m. ET, Colorado tries to build on Monday's 4-3 win against St. Louis when it hosts Phoenix. The Blues continue their road trip when they visit Calgary at 10 p.m. The Flames have won three in a row, including Monday's 3-1 home victory against Nashville. The Predators finish a grueling pre-break stretch with a 10 p.m. visit to Vancouver,

The last game before the break starts at 10:30 p.m. ET when the San Jose Sharks visit Los Angeles. The Kings have won their last two, including the shutout of Boston on Monday, while San Jose brings a four-game win streak to L.A., including Saturday's 4-3 home win against Minnesota.
Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
