Evgeni Malkin Celebrates his Victory in the Skills Competition

Evgeni Malkin claimed the top spot in the Accuracy Challenge last night during the Skills Competition that were part of the All Star game festivities. The challenge went into a shootoff between Malkin and Heatley after they both went 4-for-4 in the first round, Malkin prevailed by nailing 3 of 4 targets. Geno was also busy a little earlier in the evening helping out fellow country men Alex Ovechkin in the Breakaway contest by providing a few props to Ovie for his final shot.

He said help me, Malkin said. What's going on? I have a good idea. You'll enjoy it. It was his idea, not mine. He came before the shootout and gave me glasses and hat. I think it was a great idea.
