DETROIT (AP) -- Anthony Mantha and Gustav Nyquist scored in the third period to lift the Detroit Red Wings to their fourth straight victory, 4-2 over the Florida Panthers on Friday night.
DETROIT - The National Hockey League today announced that Detroit Red Wings defenseman Mike Green has been selected to represent the Atlantic Division at the 2018 Honda NHL All-Star Game, which will be held on Sunday, Jan. 28 at 3:30 p.m. at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla.
Green, 32, is in his third season with the Red Wings and his 13th NHL season, currently leading Detroit defenseman with 24 points (4-20-24) in 41 games this season, which also places fourth overall in team scoring and ties for 19th among NHL defensemen. Green leads the Red Wings in average time on ice (22:39) and also places among team leaders with 20 assists (3rd), 13 power-play points (T2nd), 84 shots on goal (6th), 48 hits (5th) and 44 blocked shots (3rd). The 6-foot-1, 207-pound defenseman has produced six multi-point games this season, including the first-ever game at Little Caesars Arena when he became the first Red Wings defenseman to have a four-point game since Nicklas Lidstrom (Dec. 27, 2010 at Colorado) and the first player at any position to have a four-assist game since Niklas Kronwall (Dec. 19, 2007 vs. Los Angeles), with four helpers in Detroit's 4-2 win over the Minnesota Wild.
This marks Green's second All-Star selection, as he previously served as an alternate captain for Team Staal during the 2011 NHL All-Star Game. Green was also named an NHL First-Team All-Star in 2009 and 2010 after leading the league's defensemen in points in back-to-back seasons. A veteran of 762 NHL games since 2005-06, Green has produced 455 points (138-317-455) and 520 penalty minutes for the Washington Capitals (2005-15) and Red Wings. Since his first full NHL season in 2007-08, he ranks sixth among all defensemen in scoring. The Calgary, Alberta, native was also an AHL All-Rookie Team member and Calder Cup champion with the Hershey Bears as a first-year pro in 2005-06, totaling 51 points (12-39-51) and 105 penalty minutes in 68 AHL games from 2005-07. Prior to turning professional, Green logged 172 points (37-135-172) and 324 penalty minutes in 267 games for the WHL's Saskatoon Blades from 2000-05, where he was a WHL East First-Team All-Star in 2005.
RED WINGS (17-17-7) at PENGUINS (22-19-3)
1 p.m. ET; NHLN, SN, ATTSN-PT, FS-D
Tristan Jarry will make his third straight start in net for the Pittsburgh Penguins when they play the Detroit Red Wings at PPG Paints Arena on Saturday with No. 1 goalie Matt Murray in Ontario to tend to a family matter.
Casey DeSmith was recalled from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League on Friday to back up Jarry, who allowed five goals on 19 shots before being pulled in the second period of a 6-5 overtime win against the Boston Bruins on Sunday.
Jimmy Howard likely will start in net for Detroit. He practiced Friday and told the Red Wings website he is healthy enough to return after missing one game with a lower-body injury.
The Red Wings and Penguins each will return from their mandated five-day break. Detroit has won four of five after losing 13 of its previous 16 games (3-8-5), and Pittsburgh has won three of four after losing seven of its previous 10.
