PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Evgeni Malkin defeated teammates Kris Letang and James Neal Sunday in the 2012 NHL All-Star Game in Ottawa, as Team Chara won, 12-9.

Malkin scored a goal and added an assist to help Team Chara defeat Team Alfredsson.

“Oh, yeah, it feels awesome,” Malkin said, according to the Penguins’ official website.

Malkin’s goal gave Team Chara a 2-0 lead on a slick give-and-go with Jarome Iginla in the first period. He returned the favor by assisting Iginla late in the third period.

“It was just a lucky goal because Jarome give me a pass back in my skates. I just stopped and made a quick shot,” Malkin explained. “I didn’t see where I was shooting, just top shelf. I don’t think anybody understood how the puck went in.”

Letang recorded an assist on a Henrik Sedin goal and Neal assisted Jason Pominville.
