What a start
The home fans are certainly getting what they came for.

Team Staal, captained by Eric Staal and populated with all the Carolina players in the All-Star Game -- Staal, goalie Cam Ward and Jeff Skinner -- is dominating early. Team Staal holds a 4-0 lead just eight minutes into the contest. Alex Ovechkin, Paul Stastny, Patrik Elias and Claude Giroux have the goals.

Ward is also dishing dirt on teammate Skinner, reveling that the 18-year-old rookie -- who looks like pop star Justin Bieber -- has been asked to several proms in the area.

The Carolina goalie is also giving the announcers the gears becuase they just mentioned that he hasn't allowed a goal yet, usually seen as a bad show of form by superstitious goalies.
Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
