Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist made history Sunday in Raleigh, N.C., as he stopped the first penalty shot in NHL All-Star Game history.

With 13:47 left in the third period, two-time MVP Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals threw his stick to interrupt a breakaway by Matt Duchene of the Colorado Avalanche, who was awarded the free chance to score on Lundqvist.

Lundqvist was patient as Duchene skated in, and made the save with his left pad to keep the game tied.

After the historic save, though, Lundqvist gave up three goals and was the losing netminder as his Team Staal fell to Team Lidstrom, 11-10. The teams were picked in a draft on Friday night by captains Eric Staal of the host Hurricanes and Nicklas Lidstrom of the Red Wings.

Staal's brother, Rangers defenseman Marc Staal, played 17 minutes and had a minus-2 rating in his first All-Star Game. Patrik Elias of the Devils had a goal and an assist for Team Staal, which scored the game's first four goals.
