didn't have much of an impact in the first two periods, but the Team Staal captain -- and hometown hero -- picked an opportune time to break out, scoring a breakaway goal to tie the game at 7-7.
Set free on a pass from Corey Perry
, Staal broke in a lone and slid a shot between the legs of Tim Thomas
, who started the third period as the Team Lidstrom goalie.
Amazingly, Team Staal goalie Henrik Lundqvist
kept the game tied when he stoned Matt Duchene
on a penalty shot, the first in the history of the All-Star Game.
Duchene was awarded a penalty shot because Team Staal's Alex Ovechkin
threw his stick at Duchene to try and foil his original breakaway.
