Chicago Sun-Times
Recap of the "game" last night.

"The standings are so tight right now," Pisani said. "Every point matters. We’ve been playing well the last couple games, but tonight was a good test for us to measure up against a team in our conference. They’re a strong team. They move the puck well. They’re a fast team."

 

A look at the five bigger snubs for the All-Star game

Like the league picking Washington's Mike Green over Colorado's John-Michael Liles. (Writes the Kurtenblog: "But what if Liles was prominently featured on HBO wearing moccasins while zipping around on his orange Vespa? Would he have got the nod then?")


Keeping on the All-Stars train... Ales Hemsky didn't think he'd be making a trip to to the All-Stars game.

Ales Hemsky didn't like his odds of playing in the NHL all-star game in Raleigh, N.C., so he planned a trip to Las Vegas with his girlfriend.

They would play a little blackjack, some craps, maybe take in one of the 33 Cirque du Soleil shows playing there.

I hope he got travellers insurance.
