GOAL OF THE GAME:

East F John Tavares of the Buffalo Bandits showed his veteran savvy in the extra frame with a big-time goal. Tavares, who sits second behind Gary Gait for all-time leading scorer, made a deadly spin move with a West defender draped all over him and was still able to put it in far side on Colorado G Gee Nash.

SAVE OF THE GAME:

West captain F Gary Gait of the Colorado Mammoth tried to go low after faking high on East G Pat O'Toole. However, O'Toole sniffed out the fake and stood tall, turning away perhaps the greatest player of all time.

UNSUNG HERO:

West D Peter Lough, who plays for the Arizona Sting, played strong at the both ends of the floor. The 30-year-old Toronto native thwarted some of the best quick sticks in the game but also grabbed four assists.
