Trevor Moore’s goal in the fourth round of the shootout was the deciding tally, as the North Division posted a 1-0 victory in over the Atlantic Division in the finale of the AHL All-Star Challenge on Monday night in Springfield.
That tally came after a scoreless six minute regulation between the teams, who both finished the round robin portion of the night with 2-1 records.
Drake Batherson of the Belleville Senators took home MVP honors after posting five goals on the night, plus another tally in the shootout for the North.
