2009 NHL All-Star game: The artist named player of the game.
The 2009 NHL All-Star game was presented yesterday at the Bell centre. After a spectacular skill contest presented saturday, the fans gathered in Montreal saw the Eastern conference beat the players of the Western conference in a shootout session.
Alex Kovalev of the Montreal Canadiens was named the player of the match after he scored two goals and added an assist. Kovalev also scored during the shootout session. The All-Star game was a great occasion for Kovalev to showcase his talent.
As for the final score, it is the impressive number of goals scored that stands out. A total of 22 goals were scored during the game: 11 by each of the two teams. I will not name each and every player that scored only because it will feel like everyone on both teams scored a goal.
The fans were delighted after the game and everyone will have a little something to remember of this wonderful weekend. The players are now returning to their respective teams and the regular season will resume in the next few days.
