from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,
ATLANTA – There are some wrinkles that need to be worked out for the NHL’s skills competition.
The event was revamped for this year’s all-star game, which led to some confusion for the spectators and media. At first, no one was sure if the contest started and then it was a little difficult sorting out who was winning in the fastest-skater event.
A new addition was the obstacle course, where players from each team tried to score on a tiny net after shooting the puck over a ramp, hit a target in the net from the blueline and then the goaltenders had to try and score on the net at the opposite end of the ice.
This one needs work. The most interesting part was watching the goalies try and score. Yep, as exciting as it sounds.
