Sunday, January 30th (All-Star Game)
@walsha Best comment by young female fan to Marc-Andre Fleury via CiscoVideoConference "You're cute...but you're not Jeff Skinner!" @jbk_ltd I swear Skinner is laughing his entire shift. Kid is having a blast. @jbk_ltd SO PROUD of my hockey team, my home, my state. What a dream of a lifetime of a weekend! @JonJordan Cam Ward told me yesterday he wanted to keep Team Lidstrom to "less than five, or something" in his period. Cam Ward wins. @jbk_ltd Pretty proud of my All-Stars: http://flic.kr/p/9eq63D http://flic.kr/p/9etafE http://flic.kr/p/9eq5VZ @Everett_Duke The hockey culture here is on par with any "traditional" market. Raleigh, you've been phenomenal. #NHLAllStar @cbcsports Hockey Night in Canada bio: Jeff Skinner. #CBCSports #ASG #Hurricanes #nhlallstar #HNIC http://tinyurl.com/5vr42vc @SunGarrioch People of Raleigh can take a bow. Great all star weekend, embraced the event and nice people. Ottawa has its work cut out for them. @DarrenDreger Raleigh did a great job this wknd. Hospitality has been terrific and the Hurricanes should be commended for hosting a first class event. @Matt9Duchene What a great weekend in Raleigh. Great job by the NHL and the Hurricanes organization. Thank you! @si_nhl "There is no better place in hockey in the United States than Carolina deep in the playoffs" http://bit.ly/hNA9KT @espnamerica blog: http://bit.ly/frUzJy The Hurricanes have a loyal following of very knowledgeable fans, and the organization’s class was on display during the opening ceremonies tonight. @HMof2 Wait a minute: if Team Staal won the Skills Event by 11 pts and lost the game by 1 goal, net goes to Team Staal with +10. Amirite? @HMof2 If you haven't seen this Skinner video where they ask his Dad about Jeff and his appreciation of Carolina, favorite it. http://bit.ly/gWc9IA @HMof2 Yes! http://bit.ly/fwaCo4 RT @Caniac4evr: @HMof2 "A weekend to remember" video by tsn.ca Major, major props to NC and fans here. Love it! @HMof2 Here is the tsn.ca video of our 3 players postgamer - just an excerpt, but gets most of what Ward was saying. http://bit.ly/hSUnjy @KevinWeekes BIG success this All Star was ! On the hockey fans in NC I'll quote Biggie " If you don't know,now you know" - take a bow NC ,great job! @HMof2 Just picked up this video of Karmanos and Bettman talking w/Deb Placey about the weekend and the Canes All Stars. http://bit.ly/g5Tv9j @HMof2 ROFL!!!!
