Joe Sakic
Roberto Luongo was one of Joe Sakic's three victims.

The goaltending was outstanding, there was ample offense, and no one got hurt. The NHL All-Star Game offered everything it should have Sunday as the East beat the West 6-4. Mark Messier had a goal and a record 14th assist, while the West's Joe Sakic was MVP (3 goals).
