Gaborik's Trick Leads Team Chara to All-Star Win
OTTAWA (AP) -- Marian Gaborik made New York Rangers teammate Henrik Lundqvist pay for not selecting him to play for Daniel Alfredsson's team in the NHL All-Star game.

Gaborik beat Lundqvist twice in the first period, finished with three goals and an assist, and earned MVP honors in leading Team Chara to a 12-9 win over Team Alfredsson on Sunday.

Chara, with the eventual winning goal, Marian Hossa and Corey Perry broke the game open by scoring three times in a span of 1:22 that put their club ahead 11-8 with 6:34 remaining.

Alfredsson had two goals and an assist, and teammate Henrik Sedin had a goal and two assists.

Tim Thomas earned the win by making 18 saves in the final period, and extended his record by winning his fourth All-Star game.
