Hurricanes' Hamilton (broken leg) will miss All-Star Game; Slavin will step in

"I don't quite understand this break but it's (throughout) the league and we'll try the best we can to just keep rolling with this when we do come out of it".

The defenseman has been in the Norris Trophy conversation all season with 40 points coming from 14 goals and 26 assists in 47 games.

Dougie Hamilton is having a season worthy of a Game of Stars for the Carolina Hurricanes, but could be put aside for a while after a bad injury suffered in Thursday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Rangers led 1-0 after a period and took that lead into the third before Columbus tied it up, then Oliver Bjorkstrand scored his second goal of the game with 26.5 seconds to play for the victor.

Another update on Hamilton's prognosis is expected Friday.

"That's a huge part of our team missing but I don't think we were sharp and that was clearly evident", Carolina coach Rod Brind'Amour said.

Aho gave the Hurricanes a 1-0 lead on 3:59 in the first period.

In their last meeting on October 18, Anaheim won 4-2.

The Ducks tied it when Ryan Getzlaf skated around the net and attracted Carolina's defense to the right side of the ice, leaving Gudbranson alone on the left.

Rangers defenceman Brady Skjei opened the scoring at 18:28 of the first period, eight seconds after his high-sticking penalty expired.

It was a hard first part of the season for the Ducks (19-24-5), but they are going to see their bye week and the All-Star break with road victories over Nashville and Carolina after losing six of their previous seven games.

Reimer stopped Daniel Sprong's scoreless shot with 4:45 left in the period to keep the score the same.

Hamilton couldn't get off the ice without the aid of his teammates and had difficulty putting weight on his leg.

This was the one game in a stretch of nine days the Rangers (23-20-4) didn't play the Islanders, whom they beat the previous two and against whom they finish up their midseason miniseries Tuesday night at the Garden.
