The 24th National Hockey League All-Star Game was held in the Boston Garden in Boston, home of the Boston Bruins. This was the first time that the all-star game was held in Boston. The West Division All-Stars defeated the East Division All-Stars 2-1. The West's Bobby Hull was named the game's most valuable player.


The West Division All-Stars continued to use the blue uniforms introduced in 1969. The East Division team, however, received updated white uniforms. The waistline color was changed from black to orange; the stars on the upper chest were enlarged, and had the NHL shield added inside them; the NHL shield was also added to the shoulders; the black numbers gained an orange outline; and the collar changed from an orange tie-up design to a black and orange V-neck.
