CARDIFF -- Determined to make a fast start in the defence of its Six Nations title, Wales selected a 32-man squad crammed with experience for its opening match against Italy. The Welsh won their second straight title in 2013, but only after losing 30-22 at home to Ireland in the first round. That experience looks to have swayed coach Warren Gatlands thinking, with the New Zealander going with the tried and tested and deciding against picking any new faces. "We were a little bit slow starting last year and we know we need to start well on Feb. 1," Gatland said on Tuesday. "Weve picked a pretty experienced squad and kept it fairly tight at this stage." Centre Jonathan Davies was included, even though he will miss the first three rounds with a chest injury sustained during the November test series. Sam Warburton also hasnt played since the autumn internationals because of a shoulder injury but is named as captain. Gethin Jenkins is one of the props, although there are concerns over the state of his knee after he was injured in Cardiffs loss to Toulon in the Heineken Cup at the weekend. The Welsh are aiming to become the first team to win three straight Six Nations. "We have got an opportunity to create history and that is something we will focus on and something that will give us extra motivation," said Gatland, who handed over the reins to assistant Rob Howley for the 2013 tournament while he concentrated on his role as British Lions coach. "We have got the three games at home and two tough away games but when we won the Grand Slam in 2008 and 2012 we had these fixtures so we know it can be done." Wales away games are against Ireland and England. ------ Wales: Forwards: Paul James, Gethin Jenkins, Ryan Bevington, Richard Hibbard, Ken Owens, Emyr Phillips, Adam Jones, Samson Lee, Rhodri Jones, Alun Wyn Jones, Luke Charteris, Ian Evans, Andrew Coombs, Ryan Jones, Justin Tipuric, Sam Warburton (captain), Toby Faletau, Dan Lydiate, Aaron Shingler.

HEROES Michael Hutchinson – Winnipeg’s rookie goaltender recorded a 29-save shutout in a 4-0 win over Columbus. Through 21 games, Hutchinson has a .935 save percentage (.942 at 5-on-5), which is best among goaltenders to play at least 20 games. It has taken the 24-year-old a while to become an overnight sensation. A third-round pick of the Bruins in 2008, Hutchinson split his developmental time between the ECHL and AHL, even last season, playing 28 games in the ECHL and 24 in the AHL before playing 21 AHL playoff games. No matter the level, though, Hutchinson has been stopping pucks, with a .920 save percentage in 48 ECHL games and a .917 save percentage in 111 AHL games. Logan Couture – San Jose’s centre scored two goals and added an assist, with eight shot attempts (4 SOG) in a 4-2 win against Los Angeles, running his recent totals to 13 (5 G, 8 A) in the past 11 games. Marian Hossa – The veteran Blackhawks winger had a goal and an assist in a 3-2 shootout win at Pittsburgh; he has 13 points (4 G, 9 A) in the past 13 games, his production coming around after scoring 21 points (6 G, 15 A) in his first 34 games of the season. ZEROES Joni Ortio – The Calgary goaltender’s bubble burst, as he allowed four goals on 15 shots, getting pulled in a 6-3 loss at Anaheim. He had been so dominant in his first four games, that a clunker was almost inevitable. Richards, Sharp, Kane – Chicago’s second line got a rough ride against the Penguins as Brad Richards, Patrick Sharp and Patrick Kane were on for less than 27% of shot attempts (7 for, 19 against) in a 3-2 shootout win at Pittsburgh. Mason Raymond – The Flames winger, who has one goal in his past 18 games, with some healthy scratches sprinkled in, actually didn’t have bad possession stats (14 shot attempts for, 11 against, 56.0%) in a 6-3 loss at Anaheim, but on for four goals against and none for at even strength? That’s a regrettable game. LINEUP NEED TO KNOW Sergei Bobrovsky – Columbbus’ goaltender went down with a lower-body injury in the Blue Jackets’ 4-0 loss to Winnipeg.ddddddddddddIt seems unlikely that he’ll be participating in the NHL All-Star game in Columbus this weekend, but if Bobrovsky is out for a longer period of time, that will mean more work for Curtis McElhinney. Jacob Trouba – The second-year defenceman returned to the Winnipeg lineup, against Columbus, recording an assist and playing 20:16 in his first game since December 13. Jake Gardiner – The Maple Leafs defenceman played a season-high 25:18 in a 4-3 loss at Ottawa, recording a pair of assists in the effort. David Legwand – A healthy scratch for the Senators in their 4-3 win over Toronto. Strangely enough, he had five points (1 G, 4 A) in his past six games, but has also played fewer than 10 minutes five times in his past 13 games. Evgeni Malkin – The Penguins centre will miss the All-Star game and beyond with a lower-body injury. Jeremy Morin – Columbus’ winger was knocked from the game against Winnipeg after suffering an upper-body injury. SHORT SHIFTS Senators D Erik Karlsson scored two goals on 10 shot attempts (6 SOG) against Toronto, giving him nine points (5 G, 4 A) in the past 11 games…Senators RW Bobby Ryan added two assists, and has 12 points (5 G, 7 A) in the past 12 games…Flames LW Lance Bouma picked up a couple of assists in a 6-3 loss at Anaheim, and now has seven assists in his past six games…Ducks RW Corey Perry had two assists in the win over Calgary, and has nine points (5 G, 4 A) in the past seven games…Kings C Anze Kopitar had two assists in a 4-2 loss at San Jose, giving him 11 points (3 G, 8 A) in the past eight games…Blue Jackets rookie winger Josh Anderson is getting an opportunity with so many injuries in Columbus. He played 15:00 against Winnipeg, a lot of it with Brandon Dubinsky and Scott Hartnell, and generated eight shot attempts (4 SOG). FIRSTS Nick Shore – The Kings’ rookie winger picked up his first NHL point, in his third NHL game, assisting on Jeff Carter’s late third-period power play goal at San Jose. ' ' '
