Maurice "Rocket" Richard scored the first and last goals of the game, and brother Henri Richard scored the winning goal and added two assists to lead the Stanley Cup champion Montreal Canadiens to a 6-3 victory over the all-stars. Andy Bathgate of the New York Rangers scored twice for the All-Stars.
