Penguins defenseman Kris Letang scored two goals in his first NHL All-Star Game, while Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury had a rough time -- which is normal in these exhibitions, thanks to little defense or hitting.
Letang, playing for Team (Eric) Staal, scored in the second and third periods of an 11-10 Team (Nicklas) Lidstrom win today at RBC Center.
His first goal, on a rising shot past Team Lidstrom goaltender Jonas Hiller of Anaheim, gave Team Staal a 6-4 lead at 6:10 of the second period. At 8:46 of the third period, Letang was right in front of the net when he took a feed from Patrik Elias of New Jersey and beat goaltender Tim Thomas of Boston for an 8-7 Team Staal lead.
