One thought on “Blackhawks Show Well In All-Star Game

  1. Even by NHL allstar game standards, the beginning of this game was bad. Overpassing and dipsydoodling all over the place. I felt the game got better as it went along once the players natural competative juices started flowing a bit. Not surprisingly, Toews led the charge in getting a bit more serious about trying to win the game instead of just goofing off. Regardless, I enjoyed the game anyway because it was hockey on my TV after several days of hockey withdrawal. Plus all 5 Hawks acquited themselves well.

    The only gripe I have (other than all the non-hockey pomp and circumstance spectacle stuff) is the dark jerseys with dark numbers making it impossible to identify the players by their number.
