Hmm. Thought that was the "Blueshirts off our backs" ceremony..... As far as I can see the McD Extra Effort Award always have been presented before a game starts. My money still is on tonight before the Carolina game
Then you know the answer to your own question
You're right about Thursday night, I mixed those two ceremonies.
Zuccarello should win. But I kind of wanted Boyle. He gets crap from a lot of fans but is the definition of what the award is. A hard working, unsung hero who does the little things that help the team win. I know he won't even get a sniff. But guys like him and Dom Moore have been a big part of this year.
