Staal Leads East All-Stars to 8-7 Win
Eric Staal scored a goal, had two assists, and won a brand new truck along with MVP honors as he helped lead the Eastern Conference over the Western Conference 8-7 in the 56th NHL All-Star Game last night.
Marc Savard scored the winning goal with only 20.9 seconds left in regulation in a game that saw the West come back from a 5-1 deficit to tie the game in the third.
No rough stuff in this one. There hasn’t been a penalty in an All-Star Game since 2000. However Dion Phaneuf did jokingly mention that he was considering throwing a big hit to try and spark the West while they were down early on.
Koci on waivers
While it’s a huge blow in terms of overall team toughness, Koci was still finding it hard to get into the lineup even with injuries abound.
