NHL All-Star Game sets record for most goals scored
The 2015 NHL All-Star Game featured a record 29 goals scored as Team Toews defeated Team Foligno 17-12 Sunday night in Columbus, Ohio.
John Tavares scored four goals -- and had a hat trick by the second intermission -- while Jakub Voracek added three goals and three assists to power Team Toews. Tavares tied the All-Star record for goals in a game that is also held by Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and three others. Voracek also tied Lemieux's record of six points in an All-Star game.
"I don't know if I really deserved it, but it's pretty cool to be MVP,'' Johansen said, according to The Cleveland Plain Dealer. "We've just been really enjoying every moment of this weekend, and just being in Columbus and in front of our fans and our first game, it really has been a very special weekend and something we'll remember for a long time.''
