The NHL All Star Skills Competition is over. Here are the highlights!

The NHL Skills Competition has wrapped up, and the Eastern Division all-stars took the victory by a score of 29-12. Brent Burns didn't win the Breakaway Challenge, but his attempts with his and Joe Pavelski's sons and his wookiee mask were my favourite parts of the night. You can see video here.

Some other highlights from the night included the Red Wings' Dylan Larkin beating the record for the fastest skater competition with a time of 12.894 seconds. The previous record was set by Mike Gartner in 1996.

PK Subban won the Breakaway Challenge with his Jaromir Jagr tribute.

Subban got 31% of the vote for the win.

Joe Pavelski came in third place in the Accuracy Shooting competition. He knocked down all four targets in 14.088 seconds. John Tavares won with a time of 12.294.

Shea Weber dominated the Hardest Shot competition, coming just short of beating Zdeno Chara's record with a shot that hit 108.1 miles per hour. He used a stick with a flex of 130, which Tyler Seguin couldn't move. John Scott also participated in this event, and he held his own with a shot clocking at 95.9 miles per hour.

Everyone participated in the shootout to end the night. Brent Burns had both his shot attempts saved by Roberto Luongo, while Joe Pavelski went one-for-two against Braden Holtby (he was the only one to get one past Holtby, though, and one of only two Western Conference players to score).

The three-on-three tournament will take place tomorrow at 2 PM PST and will be broadcast on NBC.
