Dan Teat is finding life a lot harder in the West Division when it comes to all-star showdowns.

The Edmonton Rush star forward scored two goals and added two assists for the West Division, but his team lost the National Lacrosse League all-star game 27-21 Saturday night in Denver.

Rush defender Ian Hawksbee notched the hat-trick and had two helpers for the West, but they were overpowered by a creative night from East stars Mark Steenhuis and Dan Dawson.

Teat was a longtime teammate of Steenhuis, before being traded to Edmonton from the Buffalo Bandits last season.

Steenhuis, who leads the league in scoring, completed the sock-trick by scoring his sixth goal in the fourth quarter.

That prompted the fans in Denver to rain the floor with socks, and Steenhuis then doffed his trademark orange shoes and threw his socks onto the floor.

Steenhuis was the game MVP - the third time in his career - finishing with seven goals and six assists.

The fun didn't stop there.

Boston Blazers dynamic righty Dawson scored late in the fourth quarter, then ran off the floor and jumped into a hot tub with two bikini-clad babes.

Dawson finished the game in the tub with two goals and seven assists for the East. At one point, he did a cannonball into the tiny tub as the girls recoiled away from the splash.

Calgary Roughnecks defender Jeff Shattler had two goals and an assist, while forwards Josh Sanderson and Tracey Kelusky each had a goal and two assists for the West.

Rochester's Shawn Williams also had eight points for the East, while New York's PatMaddalena had five goals.

San Jose's Colin Doyle paced the West with four goals and three assists.
