Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas earned his third straight All-Star Game win, stopping 11 of 15 shots in the third period to earn the 11-10 win for Team Lidstrom. Zdeno Chara, who was playing for Team Staal, finished with two assists.
“Going into the third, I knew I had to let in one to get the win,” cracked Thomas, whose team had a 7-6 lead after 40 minutes. “But then I let that one in and I couldn’t stop them from going in. There’s a lot of good players out there. My team came through for me.”
