Reason to give
All-Star Games are famous for their wide-open play.

But, you won't see a more wide-open goal than the one Anze Kopitar scored for Team Lidstrom to make the game 5-4.

Kopitar and Loui Eriksson broke in on a 2-on-0 without a Team Staal defender even in the defensive zone. Not surprisingly, Kopitar converted but not until he had executed a give-give-give-and-go with the Stars Center.

By the way, we are more than half way through the game and the contest's first offsides was just whistled.
Quote of the Day

I don't care how big the goalies' equipment is, when you're taking a shot like Ovechkin took [Wednesday], it's going to go in.

— Former player Mike Bossy on Capitals' Alex Ovechkin being the fifth player in NHL history to score 30-plus goals in 10 straight seasons
