Unmasked: Goalies embrace All-Star Game challenges

Thursday, 01.22.2015 / 10:32 AM / Unmasked

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

For goaltenders, the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Sunday (5 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports) is a chance to revisit their youth, a flashback to flashy glove saves made playing hockey on the street or in the basement.

For Jaroslav Halak of the New York Islanders, a first-time All-Star, part of his childhood was spent imitating a handful of past All-Stars in his native Slovakia.

"Like any kid you start playing street hockey, you have different idols growing up," Halak told NHL.com. "Growing up I used to be Curtis Joseph, Patrick Roy, Mike Richter, a lot of different goalies."

Roy played in 11 All-Star Games and finished with a 7.44 goals-against average. Richter played in three and had an 8.00 GAA. In two All-Star Games, Joseph had a 10.50 GAA.

Halak understands the numbers don't matter in a game defined by its lack of defensive structure. But for all the highlight-reel scoring, it also presents a chance to make some of those incredible saves he grew up trying to replicate.

CHICAGO RECORDS FIRST WIN IN PITTSBURGH IN OVER FIVE YEARS

In a game which featured eight of the 42 players heading to the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game in Columbus, Jonathan Toews (0-1—1) scored the shootout-winner to lift the Chicago Blackhawks to a 3-2 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Blackhawks improved to 30-15-2 (62 points) and tied the idle St. Louis Blues for second in the Central Division. Chicago's first victory in Pittsburgh since a 2-1 overtime win on Dec. 5, 2009 also improved their record to 6-1 in shootouts this season and 11-5-1 versus Eastern Conference opponents.

* Toews' shootout-winner was his third game-deciding goal of the season in shootout scenarios. Toews has converted on three of his seven shootout attempts for a .429 shooting percentage. Toews also had his 28th assist and extended his season-high point streak to seven games (1-8—9).

* Marian Hossa (1-1—2) scored his 10th goal of the season on a power play and had his 24th assist for his eighth multipoint game of the season. The goal also stood as the third power-play goal of the season for Hossa, who ranks third on the Blackhawks in assists and points (10-24—34)

Ducks' Getzlaf going to All-Star Game alone this time

Thursday, 01.22.2015 / 3:00 AM / 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- When Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf played in the 2009 All-Star Game, he got to start with teammates Jean-Sebastien Giguere and Scott Niedermayer at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

It was a sentimental moment for Giguere, a Montreal-area native, and the last All-Star Game for Niedermayer, who retired the next season.

With Giguere and Niedermayer retired, the Ducks have been Getzlaf's team since he succeeded Niedermayer as captain in 2010.

After an initial struggle with the leadership role, Getzlaf has owned it the past two seasons and will play in the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Sunday at Nationwide Arena in Columbus (5 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports), his third All-Star Game. He will also be an assistant captain for the 2015 NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft presented by DraftKings on Friday (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, SN, TVA Sports).

Getzlaf, tied for third in the NHL in assists (35) and seventh in points (50), is making another case for the Hart Trophy after his runner-up finish last season. He picked up the slack with 19 points in 14 games when linemate Corey Perry was out with a knee injury and mumps.

Blue Jackets' Bobrovsky leaves game with injury

Thursday, 01.22.2015 / 1:50 AM / News

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.

I was surprised. I knew I got it. It's tough. You never know how hard it is until it registers on the gun. I got pretty much all I could into and you just hope for the best.
