Patrick Williams - NHL.com Correspondent

WINNIPEG -- Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky left the game Wednesday against the Winnipeg Jets in the second period with a lower-body injury.

Bobrovsky stretched his left pad out to make a save 7:44 into the period and remained on the ice. Curtis McElhinney replaced Bobrovsky, who was helped off the ice and went directly to the dressing room.

General manager Jarmo Kekalainen told the Columbus Dispatch after the 4-0 loss that Bobrovsky is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Friday in Columbus and that it's likely Bobrovsky will not participate in the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Sunday at Nationwide Arena and in related events this weekend.

Blackhawks edge Penguins in All-Star appetizer

Thursday, 01.22.2015 / 12:38 AM / 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

PITTSBURGH – All of the ingredients were there for the perfect All-Star Game appetizer on Wednesday.

The Chicago Blackhawks, sporting five All-Stars and in a bit of a desperation mode to keep pace with the surprising Nashville Predators in the Central Division, arrived at Consol Energy Center to face the Pittsburgh Penguins. The hosts, who had three players named to the Honda 2015 NHL All-Star Game, were coming off an emotional, physically demanding 3-2 road loss to the rival Philadelphia Flyers and were feeling a bit of desperation themselves as they try to stay within striking distance of the surprising New York Islanders in the Atlantic Division.

It was also the final game for each team before the break, so there was no reason to leave anything in the tank. And, oh yeah, it was a nationally televised game, the crown jewel in a Wednesday Night Rivalry doubleheader on NBCSN.

"I don't know if [the schedule] was done on purpose by the League, but it is one of those things where there could have been more potential All-Stars out there too," said Chicago forward Patrick Kane, one of the All-Stars.

McDavid: I'm not in a class by myself

Wednesday, 01.21.2015 / 7:00 PM / Prospects

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

ST. CATHARINES, Ontario -- Erie Otters center Connor McDavid admitted there was a bit of a letdown for him after helping Canada celebrate its first gold medal in six years at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship at Air Canada Centre in Toronto earlier this month.

"It's pretty common to have a little bit of a letdown after world juniors; your game is so ramped up and everything is riding on every single play," McDavid said. "Then you come back to the Ontario Hockey League, where it's still great hockey but not the world juniors, so it's common to have a letdown."

McDavid, who was an alternate captain for Canada, had three goals, 11 points and a plus-8 rating in seven games for his country and was named to NHL.com's World Junior Championship All-Tournament Team.

"I think I had a little bit of [a letdown] that first week back to Erie but I'm feeling really good now," he said.

Where to be in Columbus for All-Star weekend

Wednesday, 01.21.2015 / 2:04 PM / 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend

ColumbusBlueJackets.com

Why is Columbus a great host for NHL All-Star Weekend?

That's a question that cannot be answered in one, two or three sentences, but there is one thing that stands out: proximity. Leave your car in the parking garage, bring your family, and get ready to spend the day downtown Columbus and celebrate the greatest sport in the world.

Such was the vision of late Blue Jackets founder John H. McConnell when he bought the franchise and made the Blue Jackets his gift to the city. He partnered with Nationwide Insurance, who had the goal of revitalizing the downtown, and Nationwide Arena was built – giving way to the Arena District and catalyzing growth in a new area of the city. Fifteen years later, the city of Columbus has yet another feather under its cap with a well-connected and easily accessible corner of downtown to host hockey's biggest party.
