NHL Superskills competition goes to Team Staal

Winning 5 out of the possible 6 Superskills events, Team Staal defeated Team Lidstrom 33-22. Friday, captains Nicklas Lidstrom and Eric Staal chose the teams in a NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft. Zdeno Chara broke his own record for the hardest shot in the Hardest Shot competition with a gigantic 105.9 mph slap shot. Fellow Team Staal teammate Alexander Ovechkin won the Breakaway Challenge, a shootout-like competition where regular rules don’t apply, so the players can do virtually anything they want. The only Team Lidstrom win came in the Skills Challenge relay race. The NHL All-Star game from RBC Center is 4 PM Eastern Time.
