25. Jonathan Toews, Chicago Blackhawks make totally awesome All-Star bid “If I have to, it’s awesome” said Girgensons, the only Latvian currently playing in the NHL. “It’ll be satisfaction to the fans, really.” Selected in the first-round of the 2012 draft, Girgensons has established himself as a skilled two-way forward, and part of the rebuilding team’s young core. Girgensons leads Buffalo (13-18-3) with nine goals and is second with 18 points. That puts him well off the league-leading pace. Dallas center Tyler Seguin is first with 25 goals, while Philadelphia’s Jakub Voracek tops the points list with 44. Sabres coach Ted Nolan said Girgensons has nothing to be ashamed of. “I wouldn’t be embarrassed at all,” Nolan said. “The whole nation’s cheering for him, which is great to see. So he should feel a lot of pride.” Nolan knows plenty about Girgensons and Latvia. He spent the previous four years coaching Latvia’s national team, which included Girgensons. source: http://www.foxsports.com/nhl/story/buffalo-sabres-chicago-blackhawks-all-star-vote-lead-zemgus-girgensons-jonathan-toews-patrick-kane-122314

Avalanche gears up to extend winning streak with Blackhawks in town – The Denver Post

Avalanche rookie goalie Calvin Pickard as the team battle Predators at the Pepsi Center on Dec. 9, 2014.

9, 2014. (Doug Pensinger, Getty Images) NHL standings The Avalanche, riding a season-best three-game winning streak and points in its last six, returned from a three-day holiday break Saturday morning to prepare for the ensuing game against the Chicago Blackhawks at the Pepsi Center. Avs coach Patrick Roy will stick with the same lineup that produced Tuesday’s 5-0 rout of the St. Louis Blues, except rookie goalie Calvin Pickard will start and Semyon Varlamov will serve as the backup. Pickard, 22, could be returned to the minors after the game , or in the near future if Varlamov continues to elude setbacks from his troubling groin injury. Pickard’s .939 save percentage is the NHL’s second highest behind Winnipeg’s Michael Hutchinson (.944). Chicago is coming off a 5-1 loss to the visiting Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday. The Blackhawks beat the Avs 3-2 on Nov. 26 in Denver in the first meeting between the Central Division rivals this season. source: http://www.denverpost.com/sports/ci_27215143/avalanche-gears-up-extend-winning-streak-blackhawks-town?source=rss
