Observations:

January 2015- As stated by Julius Ceasar, "I came, I saw and I conquered" almost fits Dylan Larkin to a tee. The rookie sensation has burst onto the NHL scene consistently showcasing his blistering speed, deft passing and timely scoring on route to being voted as Detroit's lone All Star representive in Nashville. He certainly proved he deserved to be there as I mentioned before time-and-time again he absolutely flies on the ice and he proved that to the world by besting Mike Gartner's 20 year old record of 13.386 seconds with a time of 13.172.

It wasn't meant to be as they were ultimately defeated by Pacific All Stars by a single goal in what turned into a goaltending duo. The score didn't tell the story here as there were many prime scoring chances and even more stupendous saves. With a couple of those saves coming as a direct result of Larkin's relentless effort, which obviosuly didn't go unnoticed as he was rewarded with ice-time in the crunch with the goalie pulled as they looked for the equalizer.
