The Game

Mario's return

The 2000–01 NHL season was highlighted by the return of Mario Lemieux. After three and a half years in retirement, Lemieux returned to NHL action and with it came a selection to his ninth NHL All-Star Game. Notching a goal and an assist for the North America All-Stars, Lemieux’s All-Star totals climbed to 12 goals and 10 assists for 22 points. He trails only Wayne Gretzky for the All-Star Game’s all-time leading scoring title (13–12–25).

"All-American" domination

Bill Guerin (Worcester, MA), Tony Amonte (Hingham, MA) and Doug Weight (Warren, MI) dominated the 51st NHL All-Star Game, as the U.S.-born line figured in six of the North America All-Stars’ 14 goals, combining for 13 points (six goals, seven assists). In his All-Star Game debut, Guerin recorded a hat trick and added two assists, capturing MVP honors. The North America All-Stars defeated the World All-Stars 14–12, setting a new All-Star Game record for most goals scored by both teams in one game (26).
