The game was considered a dull affair by the writers. Only three minor penalties were called. Montreal's John Ferguson scored two goals and punched Norm Ullman to earn a penalty. The All-Stars' coach, Sid Abel, chose New York's Ed Giacomin over his own goalie Roger Crozier, who had been playoff MVP in the previous playoffs. Bobby Orr was not chosen to the game, as the selections were to be based on the previous season's performance.
Note: Laperriere was a member of the 1965–66 First All-Star team, and Rousseau was a member of the 1965–66 Second All-Star team. Montreal captain Jean Beliveau, who did not play, and goaltender Gump Worsley, who was injured, were also members of the Second All-Star team.
