2012 NHL All-Star Game: Team Chara Boasts Pavel Datsyuk, Jimmy Howard Vs. Team Alfredsson

The 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game will be played in Ottawa on Sunday with the puck dropping at 4 p.m. eastern time. Forward Pavel Datsyuk and goalie Jimmy Howard are the Detroit Red Wings' representatives, both playing on Team Chara.

They participated in three of the six skills challenges Saturday night, in which Team Alfredsson beat Team Chara easily by a final score of 21-12. All the results and rules of each event can be found here.

Jimmy Howard saved three of five in the elimination shootout, but was the slowest skater in the Bridgestone Fastest Skater competition. Pavel Datsyuk was stopped on his only shot in the elimination shootout and was on the slowest relay challenge team.

Hopefully, Datsyuk and Howard will have a much better showing during the game. After all, their performance in that setting got them to this weekend anyway.
