2014 Alumni Game

I feel like I'm the only HFBoarder that comes to this every year.

Always a fun time, though... I expect no less today.

I'm sure Tripp will tell us all about it next telecast.

We have the first waved-off goal in Alumni Game history... it was kicked in. John said it was being reviewed by two guys at Bojangles in Holly Springs.

Cool moment as all of the alumni were on the ice for a shift. Needless to say, the play was considerably faster than it has been most of the game.

Before leaving, I discovered that I have the same phone as the greatest play-by-play guy in the world. Clearly, I am doing something right in my life.

I can't believe you didn't mention Tripp's injury in the second period -- which was, in all likelihood, a groin injury.

Hope he's ok. He was clearly suffering in the third.

A timeout should have been called at some point. The team was clearly rattled to see him in pain out there.

Too much North-South hockey going on probably caused it.

I thought that "lower-body injury" was a joke... obviously, it wasn't. Will we need a replacement in the booth for the final week of the season?

I was #24 in white. Tripp robbed me blind with a 2 pad stack. Not that I'm bitter or anything.

I mentioned it in passing a couple times. It was an awesome experience.

You managed to make the "Flavor of the Game" clip then.

http://video.hurricanes.nhl.com/vide...id=DL|CAR|home starting at about 0:11. Tripp's robbery of you is around 2:10

He robbed me a few times. My takeaway from the player interactions was that Brett Hedican is the nicest guy in the world. Just seemed so genuinely happy to be there. Not that the other guys didn't but he just stuck out in that regard.

That's awesome, wish you had been more vocal about it, maybe more of us would have shown up. I could have told people "I post on the same message board as that guy."

Hey Joe, you back-check like Ovechkin!

You're on the Canes board now. The correct assessment is that I back check like Eric Staal. I could have just stopped moving entirely like Battaglia and I wouldn't have even been in the picture.

So I was hoping to DVR tonight's game in case there was some footage of the Alumni game but Rangers games get blacked out in my neck of the woods. Would any of you fine NC residents be willing/able to DVR tonight's game (and pre game show ideally)and send me a copy?

haha... I noticed that fine 'Eric Staal like' back checking there, and now passing the buck to Skinner (even back checking worse) ha. must have been a nice experience...
