Results for 2009 NHL All-Star skills competition

Hey, the title's a mouthful but at least I didn't include the sponsors.

I had a chance to catch some of the rookies vs. sophomore game along with bits and pieces from the shootout and hardest shot.  I don't really know what Alex Ovechkin was going for with the props during the breakaway competition, but it helped him take the win anyways.

The rest of the results are after the jump.
