Top Ten NHL All Star Game Tweets

That’s it. The 2011 NHL All Star Game is over.

Team Lidstrom came back from being down 4-0 in the first period to defeat Team Staal 11-10. Patrick Sharp was voted the game’s MVP and the Kings’ Anze Kopitar had two goals.

Kudos to all the changes the NHL put in place this year, especially the draft on Friday night. Overall, it was a great weekend.

As for the game itself, well – leave it to the fine people on twitter to bring some unexpected humor to things. Here are my ten eleven favorite tweets that appeared during the game on Sunday afternoon…

@DaveLozo – So clearly someone needs to drop the gloves for Team Lidstrom. (note: this was after they went up 3-0)

@Real_ESPNLeBrun – Fleury thinks it’s the second round of the playoffs vs. Montreal

@LAKingsGM – #NHLAllStarGame made me realize that every #NHL team should have 1 Sedin. #cloning

@DaveLozo – Team Staal should’ve just played the trap the last 50 minutes. Instead, we’re tied. Poor job by Quenneville.

@DennisTFP – Only 1 winner from Guardian project – Stan Lee’s agent. @NHL should hire him as head of business development, dude is a closer.

@twolinepass – y’know, i never thought I’d see the day a 3 doors down show was the better of two intermission gimmicks

@cyclelikesedins – Looks like Anze Kopitar borrowed Dan Severn’s shirt. (note: only long time UFC fans will get this…still, classic)

@cyclelikesedins – The Get Jeff Skinner a Goal saga is starting to reach “over-hyping a friend before a blind date status.”

@LAKingsGM – Toronto disallows it. RT @cheshirecat25 I just started watching the All Star game. I’m so excited Kopi just scored :-)

@jprutherford – Bud Selig has announced that the Stanley Cup finals will be played in the city of the player who scores the game-winner in All-Star game.

@RalphStrangis – Loui just got screwed out of a car. (note: Dallas Stars play by play guy tweets…somebody sign up Bob Miller or Jim Fox)

For what it’s worth, I disagree with Strangis. I voted for Kopitar.
