Sunday’s 60th NHL All-Star Game was a record-setting offensive display.
Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek led the way with three goals and three assists as Team Toews defeated Team Foligno 17-12, setting a new NHL record for goals scored in the exhibition contest.
The previous record was set in the 51st All-Star Game back in 2001. North America and The World combined for 26 goals, with Bill Guerin winning the MVP award on the strength of a five-point performance.
Tonight, with two goals, two assists and a game-high seven shots on goal, Ryan Johansen (Team Foligno) of the hometown Columbus Blue Jackets was awarded the MVP honours.
New York Islanders forward John Tavares tied an NHL All-Star record with four goals. Dany Heatley was the last to accomplish this feat back in 2003. Four others, including Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux, have also achieved that mark in the past.
In total, 25 players recorded multi-point nights and only two players — Anze Kopitar and Zemgus Girgensons (Team Foligno) — were held off the scoresheet altogether.
Jets defenceman Dustin Byfuglien recorded an assist in 18:22 of ice time.
