Irving was making his third straight start in place of the injured Miikka Kiprusoff.
He made 23 saves in regulation and overtime combined but was beaten on the only two attempts he faced in the skills competition.

Flames GM Jay Feaster is expected to address to the goaltending situation in Calgary some time today.
