Last night, after Claude Giroux and Kimmo Timonen got picked relatively early in the All-Star team selections, leaving Scott Hartnell all to his lonesome and with the fear of a fat kid in a dodgeball draft, Giroux and Hartsy exchanged a few Twitter chirps, as a hockey player would probably call them.

First up, G-Spot:

Mr. Hartnell?

30 minutes later, Hartnell joined Giroux on Team Alfredsson. His reaction:

Hockey players also like hashtags, apparently.

No response from Claude, who is clearly the cool kid in this relationship (the ultimate sign of power and control is the person who can duck out of a conversation first). 

Sean Couturier and Matt Read, as part of the rookie group, will join Giroux and Hartnell on Team Alfredsson. Timonen is on Team Chara.

Other stuff:

And finally, just for shits and giggles, here’s video of Joey Junior Blackhawks reporter flirting with Heidi Androl of the NHL Network. She’s one of the more functional beauties the NHL rolled out for the event.
