Of course, thats because five Blackhawks were already voted in as starters, along with some Latvian dude. Buffalo Sabres forward Zemgus Girgensons led all will players with 1,574,896 votes, many of them flooding the ballot box from his native Latvia. Blackhawks forwards Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews , defensemen Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook , and goaltender Corey Crawford were the other starters voted in for the NHL All-Star Weekend, Jan. 24-25 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus. So who made the cut for the big weekend? Here they are; keep in mind every team needed a representative, the NHL values stardom over achievement, and someone had to make it from the Hurricanes. Forwards Tanner Pearson, Los Angeles Kings Filip Forsberg, Nashville Predators Jonathan Drouin , Tampa Bay Lightning *** The 2015 NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft will be held on Friday, Jan. 23, to divide the All-Stars and Rookies into two teams (8:00 p.m. ET, NBCSN, SN, TVA Sports). Captains for each squad will be announced next week. The highest-scoring player not to make the cut is Nikita Kucherov of the Lightning, but his linemate Johnson is an all-star. James van Riemsdyk (40 points) stays home, as Kessel makes the game. Jiri Hudler should have made the game based on achievement, but hey, gotta throw the Oilers that bone. A case could be made for either Nicklas Backstrom or John Carlson from the Capitals; but again, Ottawa and Carolina need their all-stars, too. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/nhl-2015-all-stars-announced–who-was-snubbed-233642200.html

Blackhawks-Oilers Preview – Yahoo Sports

They aren’t likely to get much sympathy from the slumping Minnesota Wild . Chicago tries to continue its recent success with a visit to the Wild as these Central Division opponents meet Thursday night. The Blackhawks (26-12-2) were riding high after winning eight straight and 10 of 11, but things haven’t gone as smoothly during a 4-3-1 stretch. Chicago leads the league with a 2.15 goals-against average but has surrendered 20 goals over its last six games. The Blackhawks are looking to bounce back following Tuesday’s 2-0 loss to Colorado. Chicago recorded a season-high 54 shots but was blanked by Semyon Varlamov in suffering its first shutout since Nov. 2. Corey Crawford allowed both goals in the opening 1:17. The Blackhawks have given up the first goal in five straight games. “It’s frustrating,” forward Patrick Sharp told the team’s official website. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-wild-preview-235401714–nhl.html

They’ve reached the halfway point in the season with some work to do in the Central, where they trail Nashville by two points. They finished the first half 14-1-0 when leading after one period and 14-0-0 when leading after two, and those numbers improved against the Wild because of Corey Crawford. Crawford made 42 saves in easily his best of eight games since returning from a lower-body injury. Prior to the injury, he was 12-5-1 with a 1.87 goals-against average. Since, he’s 4-3-1 with a 2.98 GAA, so there’s still work to do, but his value was recognized against the Wild. “That was a goalie win,” Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. “They were the better team tonight, for sure, and we dodged a bullet.” Crawford is 3-0-0 with a 1.59 GAA in his last four games against the Oilers. Chicago’s five straight wins in the series have come by a 26-10 total, including a 7-1 win in Edmonton on Nov. 22 to begin the season series. Kane has nine points in those wins and 23 on a 13-game point streak in the series. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-oilers-preview-151738248–nhl.html
