Tweet of the Moment 2/4/16

Timeout Boston with 31.2 seconds left and faceoff in their zone. 2-2. — Buffalo Sabres (@BuffaloSabres) February 5, 2016 I would certainly say that this is a great time to reevaluate their place in the world. Tied with Buffalo and a faceoff in your own zone is pretty bottom of the barrel. Get well soon, Bruins.

WATCH: KHL player lights stick on fire at All-Star shootout event

The hot new expression on social media these days? “IT’S LIT!” A minor-league hockey all-star event just got lit — in a literal way. When it comes to all-star games in sports, the luster and intrigue has dwindled for a variety of reasons over the years. To some, the home-run derby has long since lost its cool factor.
