D. Sedin McDonald's NHL Accuracy Shooting
The highlight of this competition came in the third round, when Chicago teammates Patrick Sharp of Team Staal and Jonathon Toews of Team Lidstrom were pitted against each other.

After a first attempt that ended too close to call, the two Hawks had to do a do-over and Toews handily won the rematch. redeeming himself for what he perceived as a poor showing in this event two years ago in Montreal.

But that was one of the few bright spots in this event for Team Lidstrom, who is losing handily in the overall competition.

The other high point was Chicago's Patrick Kane defeating Team Staal captain Eric Staal, much to the chagrin of the hometown fans, who were chanting, "Let's Go Canes.".

But Daniel Sedin got Team Staal back on track in the next round of the prelim competition, beating Martin Havlat by going 4 for 4. The Vancouver forward was the only of the 10 shooters to be perfect in the competition.

Daniel Sedin then won the championship by going 4-of-5 in the final, just nipping Kane. Team Staal now leads 18-6.
