US women's hockey star Brianne Deker showed everyone how to make the challenge of going to the NHL star race on Friday evening in San Jose.
As she "demonstrates" the premiere, her time – unofficially late three seconds faster than the best male time – is not counted, but a hockey apparel company joined the social media campaign to recognize the Americans .
Decker's one-and-a-half-hour time was reflected by social media fans because it was not in time from NHL.
BRIEAN DECADER IS GOD

The official winner was the Edmonton Oilers Leon Draissaittel, which was held at 1:09.

The winner of this event had to get $ 25,000 US – which the CCM Hockey promised to give her on Saturday.
Originally, the fact that he was given to Draisaitl did not sit well with some hockey fans who pointed out that Decker might be better off using the money when compared to the $ 9 million Oilers star contract per year.
This caused a hash #PayDecker:
After Gary's press conference where he talks about the inclusion and support of women's hockey that you need #paydeckerDo not treat her as a mascot / cheerleader demonstrating skill. She is a legitimate hockey player with the highest skill! @ Bdecker14 @usahockey

Canadian hockey star Jayna Hefford also supported the mood:
Draisaitl also said Hockey News he did not know that Decker had a better time – and he was quite impressed:
"Carlson followed me so I was like," I think maybe I beat him, "but I did not know how long he took me. I just went through the demo. "
– She beat me? Eh. This is really impressive. Good for her.#PayDecker

Decker's performance was just one example of the night in San Jose about how impressive the women are.
Earlier, Decker Kendall's co-star Coyne Schofield became the first woman to ever compete in the NHL all-star race on Friday night. Filling for Avalan's star Nathan McKinn, she competed around the slalom at a time competing with the best skaters in the men's game at another barrier to female hockey.
