It seemed as tho the focus heading into the All Star game was the separation of the twins, Henrik and Daniel Sedin. While the media overplayed this (much to the delight of the fans), the twins seemed to enjoy all the attention. Neither brother had an outstanding game, as Henrik posted two assists, 3 shots, and finished with an even rating, and brother Daniel finished with 1 assist, 2 shots and a -1 rating. These stats essentially are meaningless, but who doesn't like to do well in the All Star game? (besides Keith Yandle).
One brother did manage to outdo the other when it came to the skills competition of All Star weekend, as Daniel Sedin came away the winner of the accuracy contest. In his first heat Danny manage to go an outstanding 4/4, to the delight of all the Team Stall fans in attendance at the RBC Center in Raleigh, NC. In the final heat, Danny took on, rival and Chicago Blackhawk Patrick Kane. As the final heat was about to begin, Kane kindly asked, fellow Hawk, Jonathan Toews to record the shooting on his own personal camera, which I am sure was quickly deleted following the results ;) Sedin went 4/5 and proved too much for Kane, as Team Stall picked up another 2 points, and would ultimately go on to win the contest 33-22.
Now that the All Star festivities are over, it is time for the Canucks to focus on the second half of the season. Currently sitting atop the Western Conference, the Canucks are in good standing, coming off a 2 game win streak. Although TSN reports that the canucks believe they can do better ( http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=351447)
Tonight they will face the Dallas Stars, which proves to be a gritty contest if the last game was any foreshadowing. Vancouver did manage to rope in a 7-1 victory, chasing goaltender Lohtenen, who was replaced by familiar face Andrew Raycroft half way through the third.
Well thats all from me for tonight folks. A pleasant day and great sexual health to all of you.
