and some of our favorite moments…
- PK Subban stealing Jeff Skinner’s jersey
- Jeff Skinner. The Justin Bieber of the NHL. I wish he could be my prom date.
- Timmy Thomas vs. Cam Ward in the Fastest Skater. In full equipment.
- Timmy’s wipe out behind the net. But he got right back up with the ever-present smile on his face.
- Toews’ Accuracy Mulligan and *derp* face through the whole competition
- Marc-Andre Fleury. The jumping jacks. Stacking the pads on Ovechkin. The dancing. Everything. We love him. As far as we are concerned, he won the entire Skills Competition.
- Finding out that Anze Kopitar speaks English. And has no accent.
- Those wee tiny nets in the Skills Relay. sotiny
- The new-found love between Alex Ovechkin and Kris “Look at My Hair” Letang
- Zdeno Chara‘s slap shot. Faster than a speeding bullet.
- Last but not least – Patrick Sharp, ASG 2011 MVP.
