Fun moment in the second period of Sunday afternoon's NHL All-Star Game as Team Staal's Ryan Kesler(notes) was mic'd up for Versus.

After Kesler forced an offside, the Team Staal assistant captain asked linesman Don Henderson for an explanation:

Referee side bets during All-Star games? If so, how much did Tom Kowal get for (rightfully) calling the penalty shot for Matt Duchene(notes) after Alex Ovechkin(notes) tossed his stick on a breakway? Gotta be worth at least the postgame six-pack for the refs, right?
