The American Hockey League's North Division beat the Atlantic Division in a shootout on Monday to win the All-Star Game in Springfield.
The Atlantic, with Thunderbirds forward Anthony Greco and goalie Samuel Montembeault on the team, won two of the three round-robin three-on-three mini-games to advance to the championship at the sold-out MassMutual Center.
Greco had two assists and Montembeault saw action in all three games leading up to the championship, but surrendered the game-winning shootout goal to Trevor Moore, who plays for the Toronto Marlies.
Springfield officials say both events, the game and the skills competition were sellout.
The weekend meant more than 3 million dollars to the local economy.
