Henrik Lundqvist had 57 saves and pretty much single handedly won the game for Team Richards in front of a soldout crowd of 10,792 in Atlantic City. But that doesn't really matter. What does, is the hundreds of thousands of dollars raised for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
I think this post game pic taken by good friend of the blog Stefanie A. says it all...
TheNYRBlog's Adam Herman and Neill Fowler were in attendance and will have recaps in the coming days.
...unreal job by everone involved with this worthwhile event. Loved all the "We Want Hockey" chants.
...while this was a great celebration, it actually ended up depressing me as I was reminded how much I missed hockey.
No Gary a big thanks to the NYR PLAYERS. I travel 320 miles round trip to see my boys for only a few short hours. God bless them and a special thank you to our goal tender who came over from Sweden to take part in this
@TheNYRBlog Yep. Hearing "What a save by Lundqvist," over and over made me think what could have been this season #EndTheLockOut
