The second-year player appreciates the overwhelming support he’s received from the Baltic nation. And yet the 20-year-old Girgensons doesn’t consider himself worthy of being included among the league’s elite. “It’s a little bit embarrassing and funny at the same time,” Girgensons said, before the Sabres hit the road for a two-game swing that concludes Tuesday at Detroit. “It came out of nowhere. I know people know me back home, but I didn’t think it was going to go that far. That’s like crazy far.” As of Tuesday, Girgensons has a league-leading 1,291,186 votes, with about 80 percent coming from Latvia. The only limit on voting is fans can use the same device no more than 10 times a day. Chicago’s Patrick Kane (815,990 votes) is second among forwards, followed by teammate Jonathan Toews (803,034). Blackhawks players hold down the three other remaining spots eligible to be selected by vote. Chicago’s Duncan Keith (790,922) and Brent Seabrook (641,736) lead defensemen, and Corey Crawford (714,471) leads goalies. With voting set to close Jan. source: http://www.foxsports.com/nhl/story/buffalo-sabres-chicago-blackhawks-all-star-vote-lead-zemgus-girgensons-jonathan-toews-patrick-kane-122314

Jets goalie Michael Hutchinson, who began the day with an NHL-best .940 save percentage and 1.73 goals-against average, finished with 38 saves. It was the Blackhawks’ second game since the sudden death of assistant equipment manager Clint Reif on Sunday morning. They beat Toronto 4-0 that night, but looked all out of sorts against the Jets. “Today was a letdown for us in the game,” forward Kris Versteeg said. “You want to channel your energies in the right direction and do that the best you can. Today we just felt flat.” Winnipeg jumped on Chicago for three goals in the first, chasing Corey Crawford while outshooting the Blackhawks 15-7 in the period. Perreault started the flurry with a wrist shot that went over Crawford’s glove at 9:04. Little took a pass from former Blackhawks forward Andrew Ladd to make it 2-0 at 13:18, and Anthony Peluso slammed home a loose puck for his first goal since Dec. 31, 2013. Peluso’s third career goal put an end to Crawford’s night after 13 shots, and Antti Raanta entered with 4 1/2 minutes left in the period. Perreault added a power-play goal in the second for his eighth of the season. He has five goals and four assists in the NHL’s longest active point streak. source: http://www.foxsports.com/nhl/story/winnipeg-jets-pound-chicago-blackhawks-122314

Perreault scores 2, Jets ease past Blackhawks 5-1

The Leafs (19-11-3) had a six-game win streak of their own, but have dropped their last two contests, including getting lit up 7-4 by the Philadelphia Flyers at home Saturday night. Toronto, sitting in fourth place in the Atlantic Division, is 5-3-3 on the road this season. In other action, the New York Rangers beat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 in a shootout Saturday in Raleigh, giving New York five straight wins. The two teams meet again Sunday night at Madison Square Garden. Here is the full Sunday schedule: Matchup Forgot password? We’ll email you a reset link.

Blackhawks assistant equipment manager dies Sunday morning | Puck Daddy – Yahoo Sports

RIP my friend. #veryfaast Viktor Stalberg (@VStalberg) December 21, 2014 Thoughts and prayers with the Reif family. Such a wonderful person to b around. Brian Campbell (@bcampbell_51) December 21, 2014 Rest in peace Clint. Everyone keep the Reif family in your thoughts. brandon pirri (@pirri91) December 21, 2014 Players know and certainly appreciate the hard work and effort of equipment managers who sharpen their skates and fix their helmets. Managers tend to become close with the people they serve, and it sounds like Reif was no different with the Blackhawks. While this thought is clearly not in the front of people’s minds right now, but with Chicago playing in the Jan. 1 Winter Classic and the NHL and the Blackhawks filming an all access series with EPIX to promote the event, one does have to make sure this situation will be handled the right way on screen. Again, just terrible news. Thoughts go to Reif’s family, his wife Kelly and their four children — daughtersFlorence, Aislynn, Colette and son, C.J. – – – – – – – Josh Cooper is an editor for Puck Daddy on Yahoo Sports.
