Tuesday, 12.01.2015 / 2:20 PM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Fan voting for the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game in Nashville opened Tuesday at noon ET.

Each division's roster will have six forwards, three defenseman and two goalies. One player from each division will be voted onto the team by the fans; the other 40 players will be selected by the NHL Hockey Operations Department.

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- New York Rangers defenseman Kevin Klein will miss 2-3 weeks with a strained oblique muscle, coach Alain Vigneault said Tuesday.

Klein was injured in the first period of the Rangers' 4-3 win against the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday.

"From what I saw he did it to himself skating back [into the Rangers' zone]," Vigneault said. "But he said in the morning [Monday] that they worked on him and he felt tight."

With injuries to Klein and center Derek Stepan (out 4-6 weeks with broken ribs), the Rangers are down to six healthy defensemen and 12 healthy forwards for their game against the New York Islanders at Barclays Center on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports).

Fantasy top 100 forwards: Bruins' power play peaks

Pete Jensen - Fantasy Insider

Every Tuesday during the season, fantasy hockey insider Pete Jensen provides in-depth forward analysis. From updated weekly top-100 rankings to trending players and more, Jensen is your go-to guy for fantasy forward advice all season long.

The Dallas Stars and Washington Capitals have two of the NHL's most potent power plays. Not many people will be surprised to hear that, with forwards like Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin, Jason Spezza, Patrick Sharp, Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom swarming the offensive zone for those teams.

But neither the Stars nor the Capitals own the League's best power-play conversion percentage. Through one quarter of the season, that distinction belongs to the Boston Bruins.

Led by Patrice Bergeron (13 power-play points, 1st) and David Krejci (nine, T-9th), the Bruins have transformed an ordinary man-advantage unit (17.8 in 2014-15, 17th) into a League-leading juggernaut. Boston has converted on 32.4 of its power-play chances, more than five percent better than the next-best team (Dallas, 27.0).

Weekes: Condon, Raanta among game's best backups

Tuesday, 12.01.2015 / 9:20 AM / Game Savers

Kevin Weekes - NHL Network Analyst

NHL Network analyst Kevin Weekes, in conjunction with the new Canada Post goaltender stamp series, provides his insight into the position he played for 11 seasons in the League.

This week, Weekes discusses the best backup goalies in the League.

How important are backup goalies? Last season Scott Darling was 3-1-0 with a 2.21 goals-against average and a. 936 save percentage in five games during the Stanley Cup Playoffs and was a key contributor to the Chicago Blackhawks' championship when Corey Crawford was struggling.

And when Henrik Lundqvist missed nearly two months because of a vascular injury in his neck, Cam Talbot kept them afloat, going 16-4-3 with a 2.16 GAA, a .929 save percentage and two shutouts in 23 games and helping them win the Presidents' Trophy.

Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
