Although I have trashed it in the past, this past NHL All-Star game was actually one of the best I have ever seen.  There was intensity, great plays and a game that came down to the final thirty seconds.

  I loved the commentary from the goalies during the game, especially at the start when Rick Dipietro was scored on in record time to start an all-star game. 

One criticism is that the players should shoot more and be a little more selfish, but hockey players for the most part are not showboats and would feel uncomfortable doing this, and half the time the 3-4 passes worked.

All in all it was a great weekend and the fans in Atlanta showed how great they are making the game loud and exciting!
