Blues all-stars Tarasenko, Shattenkirk share bond

Monday, 01.19.2015 / 3:00 AM / 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- From the moment St. Louis Blues right wing Vladimir Tarasenko set foot onto American soil, the transition from an entirely different culture was made easier with the help of defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk.

From restaurants, to a new dress code and general way of life, Shattenkirk instantly took Tarasenko under his wing and ultimately became, more or less, a big brother. They immediately became roommates in 2012.

And when big brother and little brother were roommates two seasons ago, candid conversations about competing in the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game came to light.

Tarasenko, 23, who was selected to play in the 2014 Sochi Olympics for Russia, remembers the first serious chat he and Shattenkirk, 26, had about playing in the All-Star Game.

"Yeah, it was probably in Edmonton," Tarasenko said. "... We talk about a lot of stuff with hockey, talked about the All-Star Game, Olympics, all of it. We were both in the Olympics; now we're both in the All-Star Game. It's kind of cool."

Laviolette brought fresh perspective to Predators

Monday, 01.19.2015 / 3:00 AM / 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend

Robby Stanley - NHL.com Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- Nashville Predators coach Peter Laviolette has found early success in his first season here, leading them to the best record in the NHL through the first half of the season.

Laviolette has given the Predators a new identity. They had been known as a tough defensive team since they came into the NHL in 1998-99 under coach Barry Trotz, but Laviolette has added a more aggressive offense.

"I think it's just a bit of a different style of game," Predators forward Colin Wilson said. "I think there are a lot of people here who needed a fresh start, and at the same time we signed a few people who needed fresh starts. I think the combination of all of that has been perfect. He (Laviolette) has done a great job, and I just love the mood he keeps in the dressing room. He keeps us all really focused and in-tune."

All-Star appearance rarity for Penguins' Crosby

Monday, 01.19.2015 / 3:00 AM / 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Editor's note: Sidney Crosby withdrew from the All-Star Game on Jan. 22 due to a lower-body injury.

It would be hard to tell by simply going off Sidney Crosby's NHL All-Star Game resume that the Pittsburgh Penguins captain has been considered one of the best, if not the best player in the world, since his rookie season of 2005-06.

The 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Jan. 25 (5 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports) was to be Crosby's second in his 10-year career. He played in the 2007 All-Star Game in Dallas but missed the past four in Atlanta (2008), Montreal (2009), Carolina (2011) and Ottawa (2012).

"It's not really crazy considering I missed on three chances because of the Olympics (2006, 2010, 2014) and four because of injury," Crosby said before a game last Friday against the New York Islanders. "One was a high-ankle sprain, two were concussions, and one was my knee."

Crosby then knocked on the wooden bench he was sitting on inside the visitors dressing room at Nassau Coliseum.

Crosby spoke about the upcoming 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend -- which features the 2015 NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft presented by DraftKings on Jan. 23 (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, SN, TVA Sports), and the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Skills Competition on Jan. 24 (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports) -- and some of his favorite memories of past All-Star Games:

ZETTERBERG HAS HAT TRICK IN DETROIT RALLY VS. BUFFALO

Facing a 3-0 deficit at the outset of the second period, the Detroit Red Wings scored five consecutive goals en route to a 6-4 win against the Buffalo Sabres. The Red Wings improved to 26-11-9 (61 points) and passed the idle Montreal Canadiens for second in the Atlantic Division standings. With the win, Detroit also concluded the season series against Buffalo with a 3-1-0 record.

* According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the last time Detroit rallied from a three-goal deficit and won was earlier this season on Nov. 28, 2014 when the Red Wings overcame a 4-1 deficit to defeat the New Jersey Devils 5-4 in a shootout.

* Henrik Zetterberg (3-1—4) scored three goals in the third period to record his first hat trick of the season and his first since Feb. 1, 2013 in a 5-3 win against the St. Louis Blues. Zetterberg's hat trick was the sixth of his career. According to Elias, the last member of the Red Wings to record a hat trick via three goals in one period was Johan Franzen, who had three goals in the third period on Feb. 2, 2011 in a 7-5 victory against the Ottawa Senators. Franzen finished the game with five goals.

Devils' Schneider practices, expected to start Monday

Sunday, 01.18.2015 / 4:53 PM / News

NHL.com

The New Jersey Devils plan to start goaltender Cory Schneider against the San Jose Sharks on Monday, interim co-coach Lou Lamoriello told NorthJersey.com on Sunday.

"I had [Saturday] off, felt OK today and should be good to go," Schneider said after practice, according to NorthJersey.com. "So, it's more just I got my bell rung a bit and they wanted to be careful. So, fortunately, it wasn't any more than that."

Schneider, 28, was struck in his mask by a Matt Beleskey shot in the first period of a 5-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Friday and sat the final two periods as a precaution. Goalie Keith Kinkaid allowed four goals on 25 shots in relief.

Quote of the Day

I don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.
