By Josh Dubow Associated Press Published 12:22 AM EST Jan 27, 2019 San Jose, Calif. — Sidney Crosby now has one more reason to have good memories of the Shark Tank. Crosby had two goals and three assists to win the All-Star MVP, and Henrik Lundqvist pitched a first-half shutout to lead the Metropolitan Division to a 10-5 victory over the Central Division in the championship round of the NHL All-Star game Saturday night.

There’s no doubt Howard deserves the All-Star spot for the game in San Jose on Saturday night, given he has a winning record (14-13-5) and sturdy statistics (2.76 goals-against average, .916 save percentage) on a team that’s near the bottom of the NHL … [Read more...] about Jimmy Howard’s will to bounce back confirmed with All-Star nod

And it’s with that in mind that Jimmy Howard, the Red Wings’ veteran goaltender, views his latest professional honor, representing the Red Wings at the NHL All-Star game in San Jose later this month.

There he’ll be joined by his wife, Rachel, and their three young children for a weekend of … more hockey. “Laying on a beach would be nice,” Howard admitted Monday, laughing after another midseason practice at Little Caesars Arena. “But I’m still looking forward to it, mostly because my boys are so fired up … [Read more...] about Jimmy Howard ponders future as trade deadline looms
