DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Red Wings had
two reasons to celebrate and a possible cause for concern.Danny DeKeyser scored 2:40 into overtime Markus Granlund Jersey , lifting Detroit to a 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday night after it retired Red Kelly’s jersey.Early in overtime, though, Red Wings star Dylan Larkin skated off the ice after grabbing at the right side of his abdomen. Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said Larkin will travel to Ottawa for the team’s next game, adding he doesn’t know whether Larkin will be able to play with his upper-body injury.The Red Wings honored Kelly during a pregame ceremony, making his No. 4 jersey the eighth to go up in the rafters along with all-time greats such as Gordie Howe, Steve Yzerman and Nicklas Lidstrom. Kelly was the first Norris Trophy winner in 1954, honoring the NHL’s top defenseman. The Hall of Famer won four Stanley Cups with Detroit and four more with the Maple Leafs, who previously retired his number.“Anytime you can see a guy’s number go up into the rafters, it’s a very special moment,” Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard said after making 19 saves.The Red Wings went ahead for a third time in overtime, setting off a celebration on a night in which fans for both teams cheered and jeered.“The atmosphere was great, just like it always is when they are here,” said Detroit’s Gustav Nyquist, who broke a scoreless tie midway through the second period. “We have a lot of fans and they have a lot of fans and it’s always crazy.”Larkin scored a tiebreaking goal on a power play with 6:27 left in the third, putting him a goal away from matching his career high of 23 goals. Patrick Marleau had a goal to make it 2-all with 2:19 remaining in regulation, giving him two points in the game.Auston Matthews tied the game late in the period and Frederik Andersen stopped 30 shots for the Maple Leafs.Both teams were coming off a long break, playing for the first time in more than a week after a bye week and the All-Star break.“I didn’t know how smoothly executed the game was,” Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said. “It looked like the teams had about a week off.”Toronto looked rusty while going nearly 14 minutes before getting its first puck on Howard and was outshot 10-5 in the opening period.The Maple Leafs failed to take advantage of two power plays in the first period and went 0 for 5 with an extra skater midway through the third period.“We had some trouble getting into their zone and when we did, they were pressuring us all over the ice,” Marleau said.The Red Wings, likewise, were struggling on the power play on three chances before Larkin scored from the left circle with a shot that went off Andersen’s left shoulder.Marleau scored after Toronto pulled Andersen to add an extra skater and he knocked in the puck after Matthews made a fluttering pass across the crease.NOTES: Kelly played for the Red Wings from 1947 until they traded him to Toronto during in 1960. He was an offensive defenseman in Detroit and played center for the Maple Leafs. He retired in 1967 with 281 goals and 823 points. “Red Kelly was the premier offensive defensemen throughout his time in Detroit,” Hall of Fame coach Scotty Bowman said. … D Jake Muzzin made his debut with the Maple Leafs after being acquired from the Los Angeles Kings for a first-round pick and two prospects. “It’s going to be an adjustment for me, because this is a faster team,” he said. … Detroit scratched Tyler Bertuzzi and he is expected to miss at least another game with an upper-body injury. … Toronto’s Jake Gardiner (back) and Andreas Johnsson (concussion) were cleared to play after being out with injuries.UP NEXTMaple Leafs: Host Pittsburgh on Saturday night.Red Wings: Play at Ottawa Saturday night. The All-Star Game in the four major U.S. sports rarely captures the public's imagination in the modern era.The NHL was not immune to this issue, and the Lords of the Game were not happy when All-Star Games became scorefests with both teams either in or approaching double figures in goal totals.There was no hitting and no defense in any of these games, and there was more intensity in the beer line than there was on the ice.However, after changing lanes from Eastern Conference All-Stars vs. Western Conference All-Stars to captains pick their own teams, the NHL decided to make the main component of the game a three-on-three contest between the league's four divisions.The is the fourth year of a three-on-three format that featuresthe Atlantic Division meeting the Metropolitan stars in one semifinal and the Central facing off against the Pacific in the other Michael Del Zotto Jersey , and the winners meeting for the title.While the response has been somewhat mixed, there is more intensity as the tournament produces a $1 million prize for the division that wins the title, and the games have been more competitive.Fans in San Jose and those watching on NBC Saturday night at 8 p.m. will be able to watch the NHL All-Star Game. This is the first time since 1997 that the NHL All-Star Game will be broadcast in prime time on network television.Here's a look at the four teams, and an analysis of the rosters.Atlantic DivisionAll-Star appearances presented parenthetically.F Jack Eichel, BUF (second)F Nikita Kucherov, TBL (third)F Auston Matthews, TOR (third)F Jeff Skinner, BUF (second)F David Pastrnak, BOS (first)F Steven Stamkos, TBL (sixth)F John Tavares, TOR (sixth)D Thomas Chabot, OTT (first)D Keith Yandle, FLA (third)G Jimmy Howard, DET (second)G Andrei Vasilevskiy, TBL (second)The strength of this team may be the plethora of Tampa Bay Lightning playerssince that team has been far and away the best in league this season.Start with Nikita Kucherov, the league's leading scorer with 22 goals and 78 points. He is a magnificent playmaker and a dangerous scorer when he decides to shoot.Teammate Steven Stamkos has found the back of the net 26 times and he has been hot in recent weeks, while goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy is one of the best puck stoppers in the league. He has 20-6-2 record along with a 2.50 goals-against average and a .925 save percentage.Vasilevskiy will split the goaltending duties with Jimmy Howard of the Detroit Red Wings.The Toronto Maple Leafs are representedby Auston Matthews and John Tavares, while the Buffalo Sabres are sending Jack Eichel and Jeff Skinner.David Pastrnak is the lone Boston Bruin in the game, and he has flashed his talent with 27 goals and 29 assists.A look at the Atlantic roster showsThomas Chabot of the Ottawa Senators and Keith Yandle of the Florida Panthers are the division's two defensemen. While the three-on-three format is largely about offense, the Atlantic Division does not appear to be as strong as the others with its blueliners.Metropolitan DivisionF Sebastian Aho, CAR (first)F Cam Atkinson, CBJ (second)F Mathew Barzal, NYI (first)F Sidney Crosby, PIT (fourth)F Claude Giroux, PHI (sixth)F Kyle Palmieri, NJD (first)D John Carlson, WSH (first)D Seth Jones, CBJ (second)D Kris Letang, PIT (fifth)G Braden Holtby Sam Gagner Jersey , WSH (fourth)G Henrik Lundqvist, NYR (fifth)Sidney Crosby is the big-name superstar who will lead the Metropolitan Division, and he has scored 21 goals and 36 assists to this point in the season.While those numbers are considerably less than stars like Kucherov, Mikko Rantanen, Connor McDavid and Johnny Gaudreau, it would not be a shock if Crosby was the best player on the ice in Saturday's action.Crosby usually has Alex Ovechkin as a teammate in recent All-Star games, but that won't happen this time around. Ovechkin has a league-best 37 goals, but he announced he would not play and needs the time off.As a result of his decision, the league has mandated Ovechkin will miss the Washington Capitals' first game after the All-Star break. The Capitals are represented by goalie Braden Holtby and defenseman John Carlson.Holtby has a 17-12-3 record, a 3.11 GAA and a .905 save percentage. Carlson does an excellent job of creating offensively and he has eight goals and 39 assists.Mathew Barzal will represent the New York Islanders and has 14 goals and 31 assists. Barzal has become the Islanders' go-to star since Tavares signed with the Maple Leafs in the offseason.Cam Atkinson and Seth Jones are representing the Columbus Blue Jackets. Atkinson has become a clutch scorer for head coach John Tortorella's team with 27 goals and 21 assists, while Jones is a rising star who has netted seven goals and 22 assists from the blue line.The New York Rangers have sent Henrik Lundqvist to the All-Star game, and he has a15-12-7 record with a 3.01 GAA and a .908 save percentage.This team appears to lack the firepower to win the competition since Ovechkin has decided to take a pass.Central DivisionF Patrick Kane, CHI (eighth)F Nathan MacKinnon, COL (third)F Ryan O'Reilly, STL (second)F Mikko Rantanen, COL (first)F Mark Scheifele, WPG (first)F Blake Wheeler, WPG (second)F Gabriel Landeskog, COL (first)D Miro Heiskanen, DAL (first)D Roman Josi, NSH (second)G Devan Dubnyk, MIN (third)G Pekka Rinne, NSH (third)Rantanen of the Colorado Avalanche may be the sport's most underpublicized superstar, and he could use the All-Star game to fully introduce himself to sports fans.Rantanen is the league's second-leading scorer behind Kucherov with 23 goals and 51 assists, and he is strong on the puck and an excellent decision maker when he passes.He is joined by teammate Nathan MacKinnon, who has netted 27 goals and added 44 assists.MacKinnon will challenge McDavid as one of the fastest skaters in the league.Explosive Patrick Kane is a veteran of All-Star games, and this is his eighth appearance. He has scored 29 goals and 42 assists this yearand is having a fine scoring year for the struggling Chicago Blackhawks.Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele represent the Winnipeg Jets. Wheeler is one of the best three-zone players in the league and he has nine goals and 52 assists to this point in the season, while Scheifele has netted 25 goals 34 assists.The Nashville Predators are sending defenseman Roman Josi and goaltender Pekka Rinne. Josi is one of the league's best defenseman and has scored eight goals and 28 assists, while Rinne is18-12-3 with a 2.47 GAA and a .915 save percentage.Rinne will share goaltending duties with Devan Dubnyk Womens Devante Smith-Pelly Jersey , and the Minnesota Wild netminder brings a20-16-3 record, a 2.57 GAA and a .913 save percentage.The Central team looks strong in all areas and should have an excellent chance of performing well in this format.Pacific DivisionF Johnny Gaudreau, CGY (fifth)F Clayton Keller, ARI (first)F Connor McDavid, EDM (third)F Joe Pavelski, SJS (third)F Elias Pettersson, VAN (first)F Leon Draisaitl, EDM (first)D Brent Burns, SJS (sixth)D Drew Doughty, LAK (fifth)D Erik Karlsson, SJS (sixth)G Marc-Andre Fleury, VGK (fourth)G John Gibson, ANA (second)The Pacific Division appears to be the favorite in this league, as the combination of McDavid and Gaudreaubrings a dynamic offensive presence to this team.Both players have scored 29 goals and 44 assists, and are tied for third in the league in scoring. They should get several chances to play together, and the results could be electric even though they are rivals during the regular season.McDavid is joined by teammate Leon Draisaitl, and he has scored 27 goals and 34 assists. Draisaitl is an excellent passer who can also take advantage of his opportunities around the net.The San Jose Sharks are represented byJoe Pavelski, Brent Burns and Erik Karlsson. The home fans will give their stars a huge ovation, and all three are capable of playing starring roles.Burns is the league's leading scorer among defensemen with nine goals and 46 assists.Pavelski has scored 27 goals 18 assists, and he is one of the top shooters in the league as he is connecting on 20.8 percent of his shots.Karlsson has scored just three goals in his first season in San Jose, but he has handed out 40 assists and is starting to get used to his surroundings after his long tenure with the Ottawa Senators.Drew Doughty is the lone member of the Los Angeles Kings to make the Pacific Division team, and he has five goals and 23 assists.Marc-Andre Fleury of the Vegas Golden Knights will represent last year's Stanley Cup finalists, and he has a 27-14-4 record along with a 2.49 GAA and a .911.He will split goaltending duties withJohn Gibson of the Anaheim Ducks. Gibson is 17-16-8 with a 2.74 GAA and a .919 save percentage.This is a powerful team that will be difficult to beat.PredictionsSemifinal roundAtlantic over Metropolitan: No Ovie, no win for MetroPacific over Central: McDavid-Gaudreau pairing is just too tough to beatChampionshipPacific over Atlantic: Hometown heroes lead Pacific to $1M win.In addition to the NBC broadcast, the game can beviewed onFuboTV.
