Home squad Staals out -

"Danny Briere, Jonathan Toews, and Martin St. Louis scored during a four-minute span of the third period to lift Nicklas Lidstrom’s team past that of the hometown Carolina Hurricanes captain, 11-10, yesterday in the NHL All-Star Game.

Lidstrom can add this victory to the four Stanley Cup titles and six Norris trophies he has won with the Detroit Red Wings. In a game not known for defense, the stellar defenseman was a plus-7 and helped his team stage the biggest comeback in All-Star game history.

Fellow defenseman Shea Weber of Nashville had four assists and was plus-6, and Dallas forward Loui Eriksson had two goals and two assists.

The Bruins [team stats]’ Tim Thomas [stats] stopped 11-of-15 shots in the third period and became the first goalie to earn the win in three consecutive All-Star games.
