Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork. Fake Mets Jerseys .com) - The Columbus Blue Jackets had to wait a while for their chance to host the NHLs brightest stars, but, at long last, the franchises moment has finally arrived. Unfortunately for hockey fans in Columbus, Ohio, and everywhere else, the honor of participating in All-Star weekend is not as luring as the prospect of some much needed time off from the grind of the regular season. Some players will skip the festivities due to injuries and other big names simply declined to put themselves up as replacement options. Even this weekends hosts were not immune to the trend, as Sergei Bobrovsky, Columbus star goaltender, will be forced to miss the All-Star activities due to a groin injury. The recent announcement that Pittsburgh Penguins stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin both will rest nagging lower-body injuries rather than go to Columbus is another blow for an All-Star weekend that will not feature some of the leagues most recognizable faces. In addition to Bobrovskys absence, goaltenders Jimmy Howard, Henrik Lundqvist and Pekka Rinne will not participate. Howard and Rinne are sidelined with injuries, while Lundqvist was snubbed but hinted hed rather use the break for rest anyway. There also will be no Zdeno Chara, as Bostons mammoth defenseman was not picked to be an All-Star and his absence will be noticed most when the players line up for the hardest shot competition at Saturdays skills showcase. But, of course, the show must go on. Even though some of the sports most recognizable faces wont be a part of All-Star weekend, this is still a great moment for the Blue Jackets, and one that was a long time coming. Columbus was originally slated to host All-Star weekend two years ago before the lockout knocked out half the season along with the midseason showcase. Last years Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia pushed back the Blue Jackets All-Star obligations even further, but like Norma Desmond, the franchise is finally ready for its close-up. Ohios capital city has never been considered an ideal locale for an NHL franchise, but the Blue Jackets enter this moment in the sun healthier than they have ever been. Columbus only has made the postseason twice in its first 13 seasons, but one of those times came last season when the Jackets gave the heavily favored Penguins a run for their money before exiting the first round in six games. Sure, the 2014-15 season has been an exercise in patience for Columbus and its fan base. The club was beset with injury issues from the start of the campaign and the fact the Jackets enter the All-Star break 14 points out of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference is in large part due to the teams inability to stay healthy. A terrific December seemed to put the Blue Jackets on track to make a run at the playoffs, but a 4-6-0 record in January has derailed those dreams temporarily. Columbus will need to jump out of the break playing near flawless hockey to qualify for the postseason. But even if they miss the playoffs in 2014-15, time still is on the Blue Jackets side. Bobrovsky recently signed an extension to stay in Columbus and with young forwards like Nick Foligno and Ryan Johansen in the fold (and also representing the Blue Jackets in this weekends activities), the once-derided expansion team could be on the verge of a renaissance. So, even if this All-Star contingent may not represent the absolute best and brightest the NHL has to offer, its going to be tough to dampen the mood in Columbus. The franchise has rarely held the spotlight since joining the league over a decade ago, and fittingly, the Blue Jackets are more prepared than ever to be the center of attention. New York Mets Shirts . -- So much for concern that running back Marshawn Lynch would be absent from the Seattle Seahawks minicamp. New York Mets Pro Shop . Coming off a 6-0 drubbing at Chelsea on Saturday, Arsenal endured another demoralizing result after rallying for a 2-1 lead -- only to concede a fluke equalizer. https://www.cheapmetsjerseys.us/ . Now, he might be their hottest pitcher. Lobstein earned up his first major league victory Sunday night, allowing one run in 5 2-3 innings in the Tigers 6-1 win over the San Francisco Giants.CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks knew their Friday night game with the Anaheim Ducks was a marquee matchup, and they came out ready. Marian Hossa scored two goals, and Kris Versteeg and Bryan Bickell also tallied to lead Chicago past Anaheim 4-2 to end the Ducks eight-game winning streak and hand them only their second loss in the past 20 games. Despite scuffling along at 1-1-3 in its past five games, defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago entered the game with the NHLs second-best point total. And through most of the showdown against league-leading Anaheim, the Blackhawks were a step quicker and more determined physically. "We knew wed be facing the hottest team in the league," Hossa said. "We knew we had to stop them somehow. "We got scored on the last few minutes, but we still got the two points, which is important." With Chicago cruising 3-0, Anaheims Ryan Getzlaf scored on a wrist shot to cap an odd-man break with 6:13 left in the third to end Corey Crawfords shutout bid. Then Kyle Palmieri connected on a 40-foot shot 53 seconds later to make it close before Hossa scored into an empty net with 7.6 seconds left. Crawford made 19 saves to help the Blackhawks end a five-game losing streak against Anaheim -- including three straight in Chicago -- and beat the Ducks for the first time since December 2011. And Chicago made its statement. "Everybody comes into this building and playing us as the defending Stanley Cup champion, everybodys got their game high," Hossa said. "Now were playing the team in first, and everybody in the dressing room can feel the intensity. "Everybody prepared really well. We always have trouble playing this team. Thats why the win is big." Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville liked what he saw for most of the game. "We had a good purpose, it seemed, every shift," Quenneville said. "All of a sudden its 3-2 and anything can happen at the end. "But we got out of this one, but for the most part, the other 54 minutes, we played the right way." Anaheims run of 18 wins in 19 games began with a 3-2 shootout victory at Chicago on Dec. 6. It was the longest span of one-loss play since the 1967-68 Montreal Canadiens won a record 20 of 21. "I think we were ready, but we were really tentative," Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said. "We were sitting around and watching them as though we were watching the Stanley Cup champions rather than playing. "Maybe with all the pressure weve gotten in the last two days, some guys maybe werent ready for this," he added. "Its a learning experience. To be on top theres a commitment you have to make or you dont stay they very long." Anaheim goalie Jonas Hiller was sharp and made 31 saves, but his 14-game winning streak ended.. New York Mets Gear. That run tied him for second-longest in NHL history with four other goalies. Hiller hadnt lost since a shootout defeat to Los Angeles on Dec. 3. "I think it was definitely not our best game," Hiller said. "If you play a team like the Blackhawks, you cant just try to work for half a period or one period and hope you win." Chicago outshot the Ducks 35-21. Versteeg collided with Bickell behind the Anaheim net at the end of the second period and didnt skate in the third. Hes out day to day with an upper-body injury. Chicago outshot Anaheim 15-8 in the first period and led 2-0 after 20 minutes. The Blackhawks dominated early, and Hossa opened the scoring with a short-handed goal at 10:34. Toews skated quickly out of the Chicago zone and sent the puck to Hossa on right wing. As Toews streaked down the slot, Hossa faked, used Anaheim defenceman Cam Fowler as a screen and fired a low shot under Hillers pads. It was the first time the Blackhawks had opened the scoring since Jan. 3, a span of six games. Versteeg made it 2-0 with 2:54 left in the period when he batted in a loose puck that two Ducks players couldnt handle. Anaheims Matt Beleskey knocked the puck away from Versteeg as he tried to cut in from the right corner, but it deflected off defenceman Sami Vatanen and toward the net. Versteeg got a piece of the flipping puck and directed it past Hiller. Crawford made a point-blank pad save on Corey Perry with 1:13 left to maintain Chicagos two-goal lead. He stopped Saku Koivu on a short-handed 2-on-1 break early in the scoreless second. Aided by three power plays, Blackhawks outshot the Ducks 11-3 in the middle period. Bickell made it 3-0 at 10:13 of the third. He gained a step on Anaheim defenceman Ben Lovejoy, plowed down the slot and fired. Hiller got a piece of the shot, but it rolled over him and into the net. After Getzlaf cut it to 3-1 with 6:13 left, Palmieri fooled Crawford on a low 40-foot shot from the slot 53 seconds later to set up a wild finish. The Ducks pressured and pulled Hiller for an extra attacker with 1:10 left, but couldnt tie it.
