On Saturday in Atlantic City, Rangers such as Henrik Lundqvist Brad Richards, Brian Boyle, Steve Eminger, Jeff Halpern and potentially Ryan Callahan will join Martin Brodeur, Steven Stamkos,
Drew Doughty, Bobby Ryan and some of the Flyers for a charity game to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
While talking about the game, Jeff Halpern said in the Washington
Post Times that the lack of competitive hockey that has been played lately could create a nice atmosphere for the game, “It’s not as intense as a playoff game, but I think because guys are sick of the practices with each other all the time, you’re looking for a bit of competition. It’s a good excuse to just play a hockey game.”
Halpern added that a game like this has been talked about since the Hurricane first hit, “If we were playing, we would have a much easier forum to be able to give back to a lot of the affected areas and a lot of the communities. Right when the hurricane first hit, I think we wanted to do something like this.”
