Staal helped set up Marc Savard's winning goal with 20.9 seconds left and ended a streak of MVP honors going to players on the losing team four straight years.

QUICKIE
Columbus' Rick Nash set the All-Star record for the earliest goal by scoring the first of his three only 12 seconds into the West's 8-7 loss to the Eastern Conference on Sunday. Detroit's Ted Lindsay held the previous record; he scored at 19 seconds in 1950.

HOME SWEET FORMER HOME

BEEN A WHILE
The Eastern Conference beat the Western Conference 8-7 on Sunday in a game without any penalties called. The last All-Star penalty came in the 2000 game when Sandis Ozolinsh was whistled for hooking. ... San Jose's Evgeni Nabokov stopped all eight shots he faced in the second period to become the first goalie to post a perfect period since Nikolai Khabibulin did it for the World team in 2002.

SPEAKING
``I asked Rick, 'What took you so long?''' - East All-Star Marian Hossa, on Rick Nash's record-quick goal 12 seconds into the East's 8-7 win over the West on Sunday.

``I was saying to the guys on the ice if I do give it to my parents, I would sure be the favorite of the family for at least a little while.'' - All-Star MVP Eric Staal, after winning a new car as part of earning MVP honors on Sunday.
