Here's what Tampa can expect from their All-Stars come January 28.

The Lightning meanwhile have been world beaters this season and are looking like the front runner to win the Stanley Cup this season and they have looked lethal on home ice as they are 21-5 in their last 26 home games which puts them over the -200 mark here as a home favourite.

Tampa Bay (31-9-3) has the NHL's best record and an All-Star contingent to show it, with top scorers Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos, goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy and defenseman Victor Hedman all representing them among the Atlantic Division's 11 players. Pietrangelo, the Blue catain, has seven goals to go along with 23 assists for 30 points.

This year, the 32-year-old Green is on pace to collect 48 points, which would be the most since the 2009-10 season (76). Schenn has 17 goals and 27 assists (Tarasenko has 19 and 25) and is tied for third in game-winning goals with six.

For the first time in his three-year career, Jack Eichel is an All-Star.

Green, 32, is in his third season with the Red Wings and his 13th National Hockey League season, now 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 National Hockey League defensemen. His 18 goals are tied for eighth-most.

With the format changed to four teams the number of players picked to a team has gone down from 20 skaters and three goalies to nine skaters, and two goalies. They had had at least two in every game going back to November 18 before the recent drought, but the lack of whistles in their favor has been a rallying cry. Add the fact that now the captains and not the starters are selected in a fan vote more player spots are lost.

Still, the fact that Hanifin would be picked as an All-Star remains baffling to anyone who actually pays attention to this team, especially after Tyler Johnson stole his soul on the game-winner in Tuesday night's loss in Tampa Bay, but that's all part of an All-Star selection process that's flawed to say the least and, in the end, pretty inconsequential anyway.
