New York Islander Fan Central | 1/27/2008 07:04:00 PM 2008 All Star Game Jeff Tambellini NHL NYI Rick DiPietro
One period, one goal against for Rick DiPietro.
The Western Conference scored their only goal in the opening twelve seconds while DiPietro was talking on a live microphone through the first period.
A few very good saves, one great one on Cory Perry.
Former Islander goalie Chris Osgood let in five but also made a few great saves. Eastern Conference while DiPietro was in had a big edge in the play.
Mike Emrick did a great job letting him do play by play in the final seconds.
MVP? Doubtful because he did not have to make a ton of great saves.
Eric Staal of Carolina won the MVP, Nabakov of San Jose was outstanding in the second period as was Tomas Vokoun of Florida.
Globe and Mail: David Shoalts felt Rick DiPietro was the games best player for the first twenty minutes in his recap.
