The NHL All-Star Game, like most All-Star games in other sports, doesn't involve much defense if at all. The games are usually fast paced, back and forth affairs with both offenses piling up the goals in bunches. As a result, the goaltenders are often overlooked in the game. As Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings found out in the second period in the 2012 NHL All-Star Game in Ottawa, for Team Alfredsson.
Quick's team, captained by Daniel Alfredsson of the host Ottawa Senators, is tied 6-6 with Team Chara after two periods, with each team using two goalies in the first two periods. So far, all four goalies used in the game have allowed three goals in their period of work. Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers allowed three goals in 12 shots in the first period for Team Alfredsson, while Quick saved 10 of 13 shots in the second. For Team Chara, Jimmy Howard of the Detroit Red Wings saved 11 of 14 shots in the first period while Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens allowed three goals on 15 shots in the second period.
So far, Corey Perry of the Anaheim Ducks has had 9:41 of ice time, with one shot on goal.
