Box Score

San Antonio Rampage forwards Brett MacLean and Mathieu Beaudoin each tallied an assist for the Western Conference as the East beat the West 11-8 at the 2011 AHL All-Star Classic in front of 10,736 at the Giant Center in Hershey, Pa.

The East jumped on the board first with a goal by Hershey Bears right wing Andrew Gordon just 16 seconds into the first period marking an AHL All-Star Classic record for fastest goal scored from the start of the game. MacLean assisted on the West's first goal of the game at the 1:59 mark when he passed the puck up the ice to T.J. Hensick who then sent a cross-ice pass to Michal Repik for the first tally. Nearly eight minutes later, Beaudoin assisted on an Ilari Filppula goal to give the West a 3-1 advantage. The first period came to a close with a 4-4 tie.

The Eastern Conference opened the scoring halfway through the second period with a goal by Wilkes-Barre/Scranton defenseman Robert Bortuzzo at the 10:13 mark. Just over a minute later Connecticut Whale forward Jeremy Williams scored to give the East a 6-4 advantage and the West just couldn't recover. The West went on to score two goals in the second but the East matched their tallies bringing the score to 8-6 at the end of the middle frame.

Hometown hero Andrew Gordon once again opened the scoring with a goal nearly 12 minutes into the third period putting the East on top 9-6. Binghamton forward Bobby Butler and Bridgeport forward Rhett Rakhshani each posted a goal for the East while Western Conference Team Captain Alexandre Giroux and Texas Stars left wing Francis Wathier each scored for the West to finalize the score at 11-8 in favor of the Eastern Conference.

Butler was named most valuable player with one goal and three assists on the night while Gordon, Bortuzzo and Wathier each tallied two goals. Rakhshani posted one goal and three assists for the East while Repik tallied one goal and two assists leading the West in points.

Manchester netminder Martin Jones and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton goalie John Curry combined for 42 saves on 50 shots.
