NHL Morning Skate for Tuesday, January 21, 2020

 

THREE HARD LAPS

* No strangers to wild comeback wins this season, Florida rallied past Minnesota at Xcel Energy Center via a go-ahead goal scored in the dying seconds of regulation by Noel Acciari.

* In his final game before captaining the Central Division at the 2020 Honda NHL All-Star WeekendNathan MacKinnon tallied twice and became the fourth player to reach the 30-goal mark this season.

Cale Makar matched the single-season franchise record for points by a rookie defenseman, reaching the mark in nearly half the games required by the Nordiques blueliner who did so nearly 35 years ago.

ACCIARI SCORES WINNER IN DYING SECONDS AS PANTHERS EXTEND STREAK
Minnesota overcame three separate deficits and took a 4-3 lead in the third period, but Keith Yandle (1-3—4) assisted on a tying goal by Vincent Trocheck with 4:08 remaining in regulation as Florida pulled even. Noel Acciari then scored the go-ahead goal with 5.6 seconds remaining in regulation as the Panthers extended their win streak to five games – tied with the Blackhawks and Blue Jackets for the longest active run in the NHL.

* Acciari (59:54) scored the franchise’s second-latest go-ahead goal in regulation (regular season or playoffs), one second shy of the winner tallied by Trocheck (59:55) on Feb. 20, 2017 (2-1 W at STL). Acciari recorded his team-leading fifth game-winning goal of the season, two of which have been scored to cap comeback victories (also Oct. 14, 2019: 6-4 W at NJD).

* The Panthers won a regular-season game in regulation after surrendering three separate leads for the third time in franchise history, following Oct. 25, 1997 (5-4 W at BOS) and Oct. 23, 2010 (4-3 W vs. NYI).

* Florida (27-16-5, 59 points), which puts its five-game win streak on the line tonight versus Chicago, occupies third in the Atlantic Division standings and moved two points ahead of fourth-place Toronto (25-17-7, 57 points). The Panthers were five points back of the Maple Leafs when their run began on Jan. 9, as outlined in the graphic below.

DID YOU KNOW?
Keith Yandle, 33, established a career high with four points and became the first Panthers blueliner to record as many in a game since Brian Campbell on Oct. 17, 2011 (0-4—4 at TBL). He became the 17th player in NHL history listed as a defenseman to record his first career game with four-plus points at age 33 or older (regular season or playoffs), last accomplished by Calgary’s Mark Giordano on Nov. 1, 2018 (1-3—4 vs. COL).

* The oldest blueliner in League history at the time of his first four-point game was Pittsburgh’s Tim Horton, who achieved the feat just days after his 42nd birthday on Jan. 15, 1972 (0-4—4 vs. PHI).

MacKINNON REACHES 30-GOAL MARK IN FINAL GAME BEFORE ALL-STAR BREAK
Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon, who is set to serve as Central Division captain at the 2020 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend, scored twice to record his third straight 30-goal season (30-42—72 in 49 GP). He became the fifth player in Avalanche/Nordiques history to reach 30 goals in three-plus consecutive seasons and second to do so since the club relocated to Denver in 1995-96.

Cale Makar assisted on goals by MacKinnon and Nazem Kadri (2-1—3) to register his seventh career multi-point game and boost his 2019-20 totals to 11-26—37 (41 GP). He matched the franchise record for most points in a season by a rookie defenseman, a mark set by Quebec’s Bruce Bell in 1984-85 (6-31—37 in 75 GP).

* Makar is on pace to conclude the campaign with 67 points, which would be the fourth-most in a single NHL season by a rookie defenseman behind Los Angeles’ Larry Murphy in 1980-81 (16-60—76 in 80 GP), New York’s Brian Leetch in 1988-89 (23-48—71 in 68 GP) and Calgary’s Gary Suter in 1985-86 (18-50—68 in 80 GP).

* Colorado (28-15-6, 62 points), which contested its final outing before the All-Star break and occupies second place in the Central Division standings, concluded its five-game homestand without a regulation loss (3-0-2). The Avalanche earned at least one point in a homestand of five-plus games for the first time since Oct. 25 – Nov. 8, 2005 (5-0-1).

QUICK CLICKS

* Alex OvechkinElvis MerzlikinsJonathan Toews named NHL’s ‘Three Stars’ of the week
Joel Quenneville focused on present with Panthers in return to Chicago
* Connor McDavidLeon Draisaitl not resting on All-Star success with Oilers
Quinn Hughes impresses youngest brother Luke with All-Star play
Event of the Decade: 2014 Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium

QUENNEVILLE RETURNS TO UNITED CENTER AFTER COACH OF THE DECADE NOD
Florida head coach Joel Quenneville, who served in the same capacity with Chicago for parts of 11 seasons from 2008-09 to 2018-19 and won three Stanley Cup championships in a six-year span (2010, 2013 and 2015), returns to United Center for the first time when the Panthers visit the Blackhawks.

* Quenneville owns the second-most regular-season wins by a head coach in NHL history and earned 452 of his 917 career victories with Chicago. He was recently chosen by NHL.com and NHL.com International staff members as the Coach of the Decade, with the Blackhawks – under his guidance for the lion’s share of the 2010s – subsequently named the Franchise of the Decade.

2020 NFL Pro Bowl Preview

 

NFL ALL-STARS TAKE CENTER STAGE AT 2020 PRO BOWL

Pro Bowl Week Culminates with AFC-NFC Matchup at Camping World Stadium in Orlando –

– All-Stars Face Off in Skills Showdown Airing Thursday, January 23 at 9:00 PM ET on ESPN –

The 2020 Pro Bowl presented by Verizon will be played on Sunday, January 26, at Orlando’s Camping World Stadium. Tickets to the game, which kicks off at 3:00 PM ET and will be televised live on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and simulcast on ABC and Disney XD, are on sale now at NFL.com/ProBowlOnSale.

The Pro Bowl returns to Orlando for the fourth consecutive season and will feature the league’s all-stars and Legends Captains taking part in youth activities and community events during a week-long celebration of the football community.

The 2020 Pro Bowl will feature two new rule changes for this game only. Following a successful field goal or try attempt, the scoring team (Team A), has the following options:

1. Team A may elect to give Team B the ball at Team B’s 25-yard line (1st-and-10), beginning a new series of downs.

2. Team A may elect to take the ball at their own 25-yard line (4th-and-15).

If Team A is successful in making a first down, Team A will maintain possession and a new series of downs will continue as normal.

If Team A is unsuccessful in making a first down, the result will be a turnover on downs and Team B will take possession at the dead ball spot.

Additionally, the 2020 Pro Bowl will feature a rule change regarding pre-snap penalties.

It is not a false start if a flexed, eligible receiver in a two-point stance who flinches or picks up one foot, as long as his other foot remains partially on the ground, and he resets for one second prior to the snap. A receiver who fits this exception is not considered to be “in motion” for purposes of the “illegal shift” rules.

It is a false start if all 11 offensive players have been set for at least one full second, and any flexed, eligible receiver breaks his stance by picking up both feet.

The 44-man Pro Bowl teams are comprised of 21 offensive and 18 defensive players plus five specialists, including a long snapper. JOHN HARBAUGH and the coaches from the Baltimore Ravens will lead the AFC Pro Bowl team and PETE CARROLL and the coaches from the Seattle Seahawks will head the NFC squad.

Pro Football Hall of Famer and three-time Pro Bowler TERRELL DAVIS and Pro Football Hall of Famer and 11-time Pro Bowler BRUCE SMITH will serve as the 2020 Pro Bowl Legends Captains for the AFC, while Pro Football Hall of Famer and seven-time Pro Bowler DARRELL GREEN and NFL Legend and four-time Pro Bowler MICHAEL VICK will serve as 2020 Pro Bowl Legends Captains for the NFC.

Ten players from the two teams participating in Super Bowl LIV, the KANSAS CITY CHIEFS and SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS, were selected to the original Pro Bowl roster: defensive end FRANK CLARK, rookie return specialist MECOLE HARDMAN, wide receiver TYREEK HILL, interior lineman CHRIS JONES, tight end TRAVIS KELCE and quarterback PATRICK MAHOMES of the Chiefs and rookie defensive end NICK BOSA, fullback KYLE JUSZCZYK, tight end GEORGE KITTLE and cornerback RICHARD SHERMAN of the 49ers.

The Pro Bowl players were determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counted one-third toward determining the 88 All-Star players who were selected to the Pro Bowl. The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its All-Star teams. It was also the first professional sports league to offer online All-Star voting in 1995.

Under terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, each player on the winning Pro Bowl team receives $70,000, while each player on the losing squad earns $35,000.

Pro Bowl tickets start at just $45 and are on sale at NFL.com/ProBowlOnSale. Get Access to Awesome as fans in attendance can watch and cheer on the Pro Bowl players as they enter the stadium on the Pro Bowl Red Carpet, bringing them closer than ever to the NFL’s All-Stars. Concession deals and “Kid Zone” activities will be available inside the stadium. Additionally, fans will be able to enjoy post-game fireworks to conclude the celebration.

Returning this year, the Pro Bowl Skills Showdown, pitting AFC and NFC All-Stars against each other in unique competitions, will air on Thursday, January 23 at 9:00 PM ET on ESPN. Each Skills Showdown team will feature a mix of quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, defensive linemen, linebackers and defensive backs.

Green Bay’s DAVANTE ADAMS, Tampa Bay’s SHAQUIL BARRETT, Minnesota’s DALVIN COOK, Minnesota’s KIRK COUSINS, Chicago’s EDDIE JACKSON, New Orleans’ CAMERON JORDAN, Chicago’s CORDARRELLE PATTERSON, Detroit’s DARIUS SLAY, Dallas’ JAYLON SMITH and Seattle’s RUSSELL WILSON will represent the NFC in the Pro Bowl Skills Showdown.

Baltimore’s MARK ANDREWS, Cleveland’s NICK CHUBB, Pittsburgh’s MINKAH FITZPATRICK, New England’s STEPHON GILMORE, Pittsburgh’s CAMERON HEYWARD, Baltimore’s LAMAR JACKSON, Cleveland’s JARVIS LANDRY, Denver’s VON MILLER and Houston’s DESHAUN WATSON will represent the AFC in the Pro Bowl Skills Showdown.

Tickets for the Pro Bowl Skills Showdown are on sale now and can be purchased here.
