East Beats West In NHL All-Star Game

By Bryan Jeon

In the 56th NHL All-Star Game on Sunday, the East beat the West, 8-7, to take an 8-5 series lead between the two conferences. 15 of the 42 players made their All-Star debut, which was without Sidney Crosby, the defending NHL MVP and scoring champion who pulled out due to a sprained ankle, and starting goalies Martin Brodeur and Roberto Luongo, who both withdrew for personal reasons. Still, it was an exciting game that saw the Eastern Conference blow a four-goal lead but score the game winner with 20 seconds left, Rick Nash score the quickest goal to open the game and get the 15th All-Star Game hat trick in the defeat and Evgeni Nabokov record the first shutout of one period since Nikolai Khabibulin did it in 2002.
