The West team all stars of the NLL defeated the East team all stars for the first time in six years Saturday night at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo. From NLL.com: "It took six years to the day for the West Division to walk off the field of an All-Star game as winners. The West snapped a four-game losing streak in All-Star play by overcoming a slow start to beat the East 20-18 on Saturday night before a crowd of 13,466 at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, N.Y. Calgary Roughnecks transition player Geoff Snider led the West with four goals and two assists to earn his second All-Star game MVP award. Three of his goals came in the second half while the West mounted a comeback."
