Oh, Hackett!

Our friend Matt Hackett probably didn't have to buy any drinks last night. The Sophomore goalie gave up six first-period goals in the West's comeback win over the East last night in Atlantic City.

Hack probably had flashbacks of his last start in OKC, but that wasn't a zero defense All-star game.

Jon DiSalvatore assisted on a third period goal, and two of the three former Aeros that played in the game (Krys Kolanos, Ryan Hamilton and Corey Locke) also had points.

The game went to a shootout, where Ben Bishop stole the show.he stopped all four breakaways by the East.

I think the game and skills competition will be on the NHL Network later today, so be sure to watch the first period for sure.

Congrats to the Houston All-stars and safe travels back to Texas.

Was watching NHL Live the other day and they had Hackett on the phone. Then they proceeded to talk about the wealth of goalies the Wild has. Then Hackett was totally humbled in the All Star game. Whatever he once had, I hope he can get it back for the second half of the season. If not, we're in trouble unless Darcy can play every game and figure out how to win in a shootout.

Just got done watching this, after watching the Wild//Harding melt-down in Minny.

Since Hack agve up six goals in the first period of the AHL All-Star game, is he in danger of being sent down to the ECHL all-star game?
