When the NHL’s official Instagram account announced the MVP of the all-star game, fans were not amused.

Matthew Tkachuk scored the game’s opening goal with help from his brother, Brady Tkachuk, but it would be his only goal of the night. Dylan Larkin continued his scoring spree from the first period with goals in the 10th, 13th, and 19th minutes. After a good start, the Atlantic Division maintained its control throughout the contest. Tkachuk’s MVP award from the NHL, despite his having contributed to just one goal, was seen as unfair by the fans who had united for Larkin.
