Tomas Tatar (who else) Scored for team Europe from Dennis Seidenberg

and Anze Kopitar. Team Canada got goals from Brad Marchand and Steven Stamkos, his first, from Ryan Getzlaf. Marchand has the most goals in the tournament. He’s scored four in five games. Stamkos’ goal weas a result of a Getzlaf takeaway leading directly to a two on one.
