I was on my way back from a men’s league game (I’m a goaltender) last night and was listening to NHL Home Ice on XM. Fittingly, they had on a classic All-Star Game.
The game that they replayed was the 1996 All-Star game in Boston and I have to say that that was probably the best All-Star game in the last 13 years. Not only did the hometown hero Raymond Bourque score in the closing minute to give the Eastern Conference a 5-4 victory but it was just good all around hockey in general.
It was a competitive 5-4 game. There weren’t a lot of goals scored so the ones that were ended up being extremely important and that’s what fans like to see in All-Star games.
