Alfredsson missed out on netting a hat trick late in the game because of Tim Thomas‘ stellar goaltending. Team Chara took out Team Alfredsson 12-9.

    It was good but I’ve seen alot better all-star games in the past. It’s Better when the league choses the best players not the fans. It just ends up being a popularity contest.
