NHL All Star Game 2011: Team Lidstrom Comes Back to Take the Lead
The teams combined for eight goals in the first period, according to play-by-play announcer Mike Emrick, this marks the first time that two teams have each scored for or more goals in one period at the NHL All Star game.
Claude Giroux put Team Staal ahead 5-4 early on in the second stanza with an assist from Patrick Sharp.
Team Staal goaltender Carey Price kept the lead safe for quite a while with some spectacular saves.
Kris Letang stretched Team Staal's lead to 6-4 when he put one in from the slot, blasting the puck past Jonas Hiller.
Kopitar then scored his second of the game to make the score 6-5. Kopitar, of the Los Angeles Kings, was the first player to score two goals at this year's game.
NHL goal and point leader Steven Stamkos tied the score at the 14:11 mark, putting a wrist shot past Price.
With 4:29 left in the period the Flyers Danny Briere gives Team Lidstrom it's first lead of the game with a wrist shot.
Bad news just reveled for Patrick Sharp as the league took away one of his first period assists.
