East triumphs in first day of All-Star festivities
DALLAS -- 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, who is just a month removed from undergoing successful surgery for testicular cancer.

"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." More
