With many great events preceding the All-Star Game, I really have a predicament. Do I go to Fan Fair and attempt to win the amateur skills title? Or do I enjoy my third dose of Carolina BBQ at NHL pregame celebration. I'm going to go with the latter. With this being my last day in the great state of North Carolina, I need to make the most of my time with the authentic BBQ.
And tonight is the big game we've all been waiting for. Yesterday I predicted team Staal by a score of 6-4 and I'm sticking with my prediction. The offensive firepower on team Staal will simply overwhelm team Lidstrom.
It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
