ASG Weekend #3: The Big Game

31 Jan

We’re finally through.    Yesterday’s NHL All-Star Game capped a great weekend for hockey and it might take us a while to recover.  Team Chuck (Lidstrom) won 11-10.  That’s 5 more goals than the average ASG, and it felt like it.  Our fave moments:

– Cam Ward was mic’d up and stole the show in the 1st period.

Lots of guys had a 2-goal game: Danny Briere , Anze Kopitar, Eric Staal, Kris Letang, Loui Eriksson

– Recent Foxy Friday had 4 assists : Shea Weber

WUYS faves had 2 assists: Corey Perry, Henrik Sedin, Jonathan Toews, Loui Eriksson, Mike Green, Patrick Sharp, Zdeno Chara.

– Jonathan Toews also showed us his spin cycle:

– Jeff Skinner didn’t score, but even Team Lidstrom seemed to be passing him the puck.

– Carey Price was kind of awesome in net.  Barf.

Ovi threw his stick at Matt Duchene on a breakaway, laughed hysterically, then was charged with the first penalty shot in ASG history.

– Patrick Sharp was named MVP (and Foxy Friday) and won a car.  Just like Phil Kessel.  First or last, Honda is your ride.

Carolina tore it up this weekend – excellent job, everyone.  Good thing it’s another year before it happens again.  Right, Cam?  RIGHT?!

Too busy flirting with the mic to stop all those goals, Cam?!

    I also was unhappy with Carey Price’s performance. Ugh.

    Also, is it okay that I want Cam Ward? My friends criticized me all weekend because they claim he looks like a 15 year old boy. Yikes.

    Thanks for showing the videos. I am not a big fan of the all-star games these days. The skills competition also seemed a lot more exciting to be honest. I really didn’t enjoy that relay where they passed into those little nets and stuff. I wish they would bring back the speed skating through the cones (when Kariya used to always win). The game itself was pathetic as usual, no checking, and obviously no hitting. 21 goals combined is just ridiculous, I don’t understand why they can’t check a little. I wish they could change the NHL game to make it more exciting but I don’t see that happening. Also, you think you could take a look at my blog cuz I really wanna hear what you have to say. http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2011/01/31/get-rid-of-em/
