Wild's Suter lights the lamp in record-setting NHL All-Star Game


Team Toews outlasted Team Foligno 17-12 in a record-setting 2015 NHL All-Star Game at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, on Sunday.

The 29 total goals sets a new record for the highest number of scores in the 60-year history of the All-Star Game. The previous record was 26, which was set in 2001.

The Wild's Ryan Suter, who played for the winning team, contributed to the victory.

The game was tied 4-4 after the first period, when Suter scored a goal early in the second to give Team Toews a 5-4 lead, according to NHL.com.

Suter, the only Wild player in the All-Star game, shot the puck from the left circle at 24 seconds into the second period.

Suter also had an assist on a goal by team captain Jonathan Toews late in the third period, according to 1500ESPN.com.
