Thursday Morning Skate: All Star

Good morning. The title doesn't belong to the delightful couple of restaurants in Inman Square, but instead the MLS all-star game vs Bayern Munich last night. It was decently fun for how late it went, and MLS won 2-1. Fun times were had by all.

Imagine if there were something like that in hockey? An NHL team going to another league and playing their all-stars in preseason?

Actually, that sort of did happen in the fall of 2010. The Bruins, en route to Prague, stopped in Belfast and played Belfast Giants Select, a team of the Belfast Giants (and every ringer in the league) against the Bruins in preseason. I remember coverage centering around

  • Shawn Thornton's extended family being there
  • The Belfast newspaper publishing a "facts about hockey" with many laughable errors.

What a time to be alive. Anyways, what's on tap y'all?
