BLAKE SETS UP TWO
false
The Islanders All-Star played alongside Hurricanes Staal and Williams in Dallas

It wasn't the highest scoring All-Star game in NHL history on Wednesday, after the West defeated the East 12-9, but it was close to reaching the 26 goals scored in 2001.

The Islanders' Jason Blake was part of the offensive out-pour, playing on a line with Carolina Hurricanes Eric Staal and Justin Williams. Staal got things going for the line in the first period, converting a pass from in front, set-up by Williams and Blake. At that point of the game, the East led 3-2, but there were many more goals to come.

One of the prettier plays in the game was orchestrated by Blake in the second period. After gathering the puck on the left circle, he skated to the right circle and fed a perfect backhand pass across to Williams, who in one sweeping motion put it past Western Conference netminder Miikka Kiprusoff. Williams' goal tied the game at four at 5:19 of the period.

"The All-Star game was a great experience," said Blake. "Eric, Justin and I started clicking, and it was nice to generate some offense. This is definitely something I'll never forget."

Blake finished the 55th NHL All-Star Game with two assists in 12:45 of ice time, and recorded two shots, both in the third period.
