All-Star Weekend Links

-Sharp: "They met some friends on the plane, rented a van and decided to drive. They drove from midnight to 8 a.m. from Newark to Raleigh just to be here. I better do something special this weekend.”

-Toews: “It kind of sucks for him and for me. I don't really feel great about it. Everyone's calling me a crybaby now because they gave me a rematch. Maybe we'll have to do it again in Chicago and have a rubber match, best out of three. I was kind of disappointed. I didn't hear the whistle and I might have gotten two shots off before he had hit all four targets. I think I caught him offgaurd a little bit the second time.”

-Kane: "Tazer doesn't win, so he complains. He gets another shot at it. I don't know. From what he said, he didn't hear the ref blow the whistle." Daniel Sedin wins accuracy with 8-for-9

-Sharp: “It feels different this year. It has been a change. I didn’t think I was going to feel any changes. But once you get married, that’s for real. It’s made me a better player, and it’s nice to come home to her. We have a little family here with our dog, Shooter.”
