Sharks celebrate rich history at 25th anniversary gala

SAN JOSE -- Doug Wilson was nearing the end of his playing career as an NHL defenseman when he joined the expansion San Jose Sharks for the 1991-92 season after 14 seasons with the Chicago Blackhawks.

San Jose, which was awarded an NHL franchise on May 9, 1990, played its first two seasons near San Francisco at the aging Cow Palace while its new arena was under construction.

"We didn't have great teams, but we had great people, we had great character," Wilson, San Jose's general manager since 2003, said at the Sharks 25th Anniversary Celebration at SAP Center on Tuesday. "A lot of one-goal games that for us was like going into a gun fight with a water pistol. But we knew we were going to battle. But the fans were there for us through thick and thin, and the guys that played on that team made sure of giving everything they had. I still can't believe it's 25 years."

In that quarter of a century, the Sharks have made the Stanley Cup Playoffs 17 times, won the Pacific Division six times and reached the Western Conference Final three times.

Corey Crawford made 38 saves, including 16 in the third period, and Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist for his third straight multipoint game to help the Chicago Blackhawks establish a franchise record with their 12th consecutive victory, tying the longest winning streak in the NHL this season; the Florida Panthers won 12 straight between Dec. 15, 2015 and Jan. 10.

* At 32-13-4 and 68 points, the Blackhawks increased their lead to five points on the Stars (29-13-5, 63 points), who lost in regulation to the Los Angeles Kings, for first place in the Central Division and Western Conference. Chicago was fourth in the division/conference and was 13 points out of first place when its winning streak began Dec. 29.

* Before the Blackhawks and Panthers in 2015-16, there were 12 instances of teams winning at least 12 consecutive games in a season.

* Chicago is the fifth defending Stanley Cup champion to win at least 12 straight games in the League's modern era, joining the 1970-71 Boston Bruins (13-0-0), 1981-82 New York Islanders (15-0-0), 1992-93 Pittsburgh Penguins (17-0-0) and the 2000-01 New Jersey Devils (13-0-0), according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The Penguins' 17-game winning streak stands as the NHL record.

MONTREAL – Prior to the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins renewing their rivalry for the 911th time in their history, a video was shown on the Bell Centre scoreboard, and the starting lineups of both teams moved back from their respective blue lines to watch.

The video was a tribute to Denna Laing, the player with the Boston Pride of the National Women's Hockey League who was injured during the Outdoor Women's Classic one day prior to the Bridgestone 2016 NHL Winter Classic between these teams at Gillette Stadium.

There were 12 players on the ice watching the touching video, which encouraged fans to bid on the Winter Classic jerseys the Canadiens and Bruins were wearing in the game. The proceeds from the auction are earmarked to help Laing during her recovery. But the moment hit home for one player in particular.

The St. Louis Blues make their only trip to Joe Louis Arena this season when they visit the Detroit Red Wings in this week’s Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN, TVA Sports).

Expect a close game; each of the past three between the teams has gone to overtime, with the Red Wings winning all three.

Each team is toward the All-Star break with injury problems. The Blues are still without starting goaltender Jake Allen, and won't have defensemen Carl Gunnarsson and Robert Bortuzzo, as well as forward Magnus Paajarvi. Despite the personnel problems, St. Louis is 4-1-0 in its past five games.

Blues' Tarasenko excited to face Datsyuk, Red Wings

ST. LOUIS -- Growing up in Russia, St. Louis Blues right wing Vladimir Tarasenko didn't have much of an opportunity to watch highlights from the NHL.

But on the rare occasions he was able to get a glimpse of the League, there was always one player he wanted to see: Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk.

"We don't really have a lot of NHL videos right now and there was no YouTube. It's tough to follow, but me and my father always watched like five minutes of NHL," said Tarasenko, whose father Andrey played for Russia at the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics. "I think it was 11:55 p.m., five minutes to midnight, to watch NHL highlights. We were always watching [Datsyuk], even in Olympic games and world championships. I think a lot of kids follow him and still follow him."

Tarasenko will be doing more than following Datsyuk on Wednesday, when the Blues and Red Wings play at Joe Louis Arena (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports, SN); he'll be trying to beat him.

Lack of scoring continues to haunt Canadiens

MONTREAL -- Michel Therrien came out with a purpose.

Following his team's 17th loss in its past 21 games Tuesday, the Montreal Canadiens coach made an impassioned plea on behalf of his players and, ultimately, himself.

The Canadiens fell to 4-16-1 since Dec. 2 with a 4-1 loss to the Boston Bruins, almost the exact opposite of the 5-1 victory at the Bridgestone 2016 NHL Winter Classic on Jan. 1 between these teams that looked to re-energize the Canadiens' season.

Therrien spoke highly of the effort his players have given, of how they have no more to give, of how well the structure he has put in place has worked, and how the only thing missing is some execution to provide the results that have been lacking.

Daniel Sedin excited for third All-Star appearance

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 2:00 PM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer

The 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game in Nashville on Jan. 31 is less than two weeks away. In the lead-up to All-Star Weekend at Bridgestone Arena, sat down with a host of this season's participants to talk about playing in the game. In this edition, Daniel Sedin discusses representing the Vancouver Canucks for the third time in the All-Star Game.

1. What does being an All-Star mean to you?

"It means a lot, for sure. To be picked among all the other players who get to go is an honor and this will be my third one so it'll be a lot of fun."

2. What is your favorite memory from previous All-Star Games?

"I think it was the chance to bring my family when I played in the game in Ottawa (in 2012). That was really neat. Me and my brother (Henrik Sedin) got a chance to play with Daniel Alfredsson in the game. That was a lot of fun because [Alfredsson] was a guy you always looked up to. Being a captain in Ottawa for such a long time and being such a successful player there, it meant a lot to me and Henrik to be playing with him in his home rink."
