The B’s are Huge in Big D
Phil Kessel scored a hat trick in the YoungStars Game and Zdeno Chara had the fastest shot (100.4 mph) in the NHL SuperSkills competition.

From NHL.com:
What an opening act the NHL YoungStars Game proved to be Tuesday night at the American Airlines Center!

The game, featuring 23 of the NHL’s brightest stars from the under-25 set, had the crowd on the edge of its seats throughout most of the 4-on-4 game. When all said and done, the Eastern Conference YoungStars held on for a pulsating 9-8 victory. It preceded the SuperSkills competition later Tuesday, as well as Wednesday night’s NHL All-Star Game.

The East’s win was spurred by the six points from YoungStars MVP Zach Parise of New Jersey and a hat trick from Boston’s Phil Kessel...

"It was fun, you could see a lot of the skill that was out there," said Parise, who had two goals and four assists. "It was a fun game with a lot of offense."

In fact, Parise started the offensive fireworks for the East with a goal at the 92-second mark of the first period, which answered the opening goal of the game, a strike from Los Angeles forward Anze Kopitar just 27 seconds into the game.

Parise’s other goal came 2:41 into the final period, giving the East what should have been a commanding 8-3 lead. On the play, Parise took a pass from Tampa Bay’s Paul Ranger and scored on a modified spin-o-rama move while sitting on the far post.

But the West scored five of the next six goals to make things interesting at the end and account for the 9-8 final score.

"You could see when we were up by just one goal in the last 30 seconds or so, the intensity picked up a little out there," said Parise.


Boston.com reports that Chara believed he was fortunate to win.

"Nobody’s king of the hill," Chara said to the Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa. "There are more guys than just one guy in either league who can shoot really hard. I was very fortunate to make it and I got lucky."

Kessel enjoyed himself immensely.

"I had fun out there, it was a good time," said Kessel to NHL.com
