Giddy up!

If you didn't catch the Super Skills competition from last night definitely watch the cip below:



Looks like Malkin and Ovechkin have kissed and made up.

Ovechkin certainly "gets it". This is where you showboat and how can you not love this guy's energy and passion out there? Its infectious and great for the game! This event is all about having some fun and showing off your personality...something we don't always see a lot from NHL players.

The breakout challenge competition as a whole was much MUCH better this year. Guys tried a lot more tricks and giving them a minute to showcase themselves on multiple attemps really worked well.

Alex Ovechkin SHOULD be the face of the game.

I don't see what the big deal was... I can wear a hat, goofy glasses, skate with two sticks and STILL miss a breakaway attempt.

Where's my trophy & million dollar contract? Seemed like a fiasco rivaled only by the "fan voted" starting lineups... Should have been a full contact game of the NHL elite vs. the Canadiens.
