Elimination shootout: Shane Doan edges past Marc Savard, as Henrik Lundqvist breaks up the Bruin's bid with a poke of his stick.

Hardest shot: Zdeno Chara brings the hammer down with a 105.4 m.p.h. blast. Chara nets $24K for Right To Play.

Oh my gosh. Zdeno Chara is wearing the most ridiculous hat I've ever seen.

Accuracy: Evgeni Malkin with the win. Marc Savard went 3 for 7.

Breakaway Challenge: Via text, Alex Ovechkin wins the inaugural challenge, thanks to his sunglasses, hat, and two-stick shot.

YoungStars: Rookies beat the sophomores, with Blake Wheeler netting a hat trick and earning MVP honors.

Skater: Andrew Cogliano (14.31 seconds) beats out Jeff Carter (14.43) for the fastest lap around the rink.

The players are being introduced at the Bell Centre prior to the skills competition.

Naturally, Tim Thomas, Zdeno Chara, and Marc Savard drew the biggest boos. The crowd cheered the Canadiens (Mike Komisarek, Alex Kovalev, and Carey Price), but the biggest ovation was for Montreal homeboy Vincent Lecavalier. The Tampa center could end up back in town if the Bolts trade him to the Canadiens.
