First Period

The East struck first when Daniel Briere, at the side of Roberto Luongo's net, fired the puck in at 3:38 after Dany Heatley passed it through the crease.

Yanic Perreault tipped a Brian Rolston pass to tie it at 5:08.

Teemu Selanne, using Ryan Smyth as decoy on 2-on-1 rush, flipped the puck under the crossbar on Miller's glove side to give the West its first lead at 6:17.

Martin St. Louis cashed in on tic-tac-toe passing to tie it 2-2. Brian Rafalski fed Vincent Lecavalier who spotted St. Louis who lifted the puck into the open side of the net at 13:07.

Eric Staal took a pass from Justin Williams and stickhandled his way to the front of the crease to put a backhander through a kneeling Luongo's legs for a 3-2 East lead at 13:43.

Lubomir Visnovsky took a long shot that went off a stick before getting past Miller at 18:55 to make it 3-3.

Second Period

Patrick Marleau put the West up 4-3 off a rebound. Martin Brodeur stopped Jonathan Cheechoo's slap shot and stuck out his stick to knock down Marleau's shot but the puck trickled into net at 2:41.

Williams was open to right of Miikka Kiprusoff to take a Jason Blake pass and lift puck over goalie's right shoulder to lift the East even, 4-4, at 5:19.

Zdeno Chara gave the East its third lead, 5-4, at 6:29. Briere spotted the big defenceman rushing towards the net and fed the puck from a corner. Chara lifted a backhander over Kiprusoff's right shoulder.

Rolston started a four-goal splurge by the West when he slapped at the puck at the top of the circle to the right of Brodeur. The puck skipped through Brodeur's legs to tie it 5-5 at 8:30.

Rick Nash stickhandled his way through the defence and slipped the puck in at 10:40.

Martin Havlat continued the West's push at 11:34. Nash passed to Joe Sakic who relayed the puck to Havlat at the side of the net.

Perreault got his second of the night at 12:47 when he darted towards the crease and reached to redirect in a Bill Guerin pass at 12:47.

Alexander Ovechkin brought the East back within two at 12:47 when he put in a rebound with linemate Brendan Shanahan in Kiprusoff's crease.

Rolston put the West up 9-6 with his second goal and fourth point at 18:58 when his slap shot from the dot in the circle to the right of Brodeur changed directions off Chara's stick.

Third Period

Briere stripped Ed Jovanovski of the puck behind the West net and fed Heatley out front for a quick shot past Marty Turco at 2:01.

Nash restored a three-goal lead for the West, 10-7, when he got a pass from Sakic and went roof to an open side of Cristobel Huet's net at 7:12 to get his second goal and fourth point.

Chara, again rushing to the net, got his second goal on a cross-crease pass from Marian Hossa at 10:37 to keep the East in it. Briere got his fourth assist and fifth point on the play.

Havlat got a pass from Ryan Smyth from behind Huet's net and backhanded a shot over the sprawling goalie at 19:00; Sheldon Souray blasted a slap shot past Turco at 19:26; and Dion Phaneuf rolled a wobbler from his own end into an empty East net at 19:48 after Huet was lifted for an extra attacker.
