ST. LOUIS - David Rittich summed it up best.
"What can I say?" he said at the conclusion of the NHL All-Star Game. "That was great."
The netminder and his Flames teammates Matthew Tkachuk and Mark Giordano helped lead the Pacific Division to a 5-4 win over Brady Tkachuk and the Atlantic Division in the final game at the NHL All-Star Weekend, with the team splitting the $1 million prize.
"All in all, an unreal weekend," Tkachuk surmised.

Rittich, in his first All-Star appearance, stopped three of the four shots he faced in the 10:00 of ice time he had in the final game. Tkachuk had two assists in his 6:32 of ice time and Giordano picked up one helper in 5:32 of ice time.
The trio were also strong in their opening game of the evening, a 10-5 win over the Central Division. Rittich stopped nine of 10 shots in the second half, Tkachuk had two goals and four points, and Giordano had one assist and two shots on net.
