Aug 22, 2014, 11:15 AM EDT

New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist teamed up with pal, and tennis great, John McEnroe to show off his tennis skills at the Johnny Mac Tennis Project on Thursday night.

The charity event was held to raise money in an effort to make the sport of tennis accessible to New York City children, who otherwise could not afford to play.

Lundqvist and McEnroe teamed up against World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and actor Ed Norton.

McEnroe and Lundqvist defeated Norton and Djokovic 4-3, by a sudden-death point tiebreaker.

    “Always be kindly to those who are less fortunate” … Psalm 27:4

    As an ardent, sexy and values-driven supporter of planet Earth’s greatest professional ice hockey team (LA Kings), I find myself ‘inclined’ to offer my best wishes to the Rangers of New York and their fans … take care friends and God speed, comrade Blomfeld

    What can’t he do?

      friend …
      I’m sorry as there are ‘many’ things which this man can’t do …

      – speak Chinese
      – repair a transmission
      – differentiate between a Hybrid Tea and a Floribunda rose
      – appreciate the fact the further ‘QE’ will only worsen Spain’s chances of recovery

      etc … etc … etc…

      nonetheless, the one thing which Lundqvist will ‘never’ be able to do is win the Stanley Cup ! … that’s right ! … and do you know why that is ? … well it’s because there’s this little ol’ team called the LA Kings which the good Lord has his money on … yes sir ! … today, tomorrow and forever !!!

      GO LA KINGS !!!
