Media day gets under way at All-Star Weekend

Friday, 01.27.2012 / 4:05 PM

The two-hour fun fest that is All-Star Weekend media day kicked off with the game's three coaches -- Claude Julien, John Tortorella and Todd McLellan holding court for about 10 minutes apiece as the media engulfed them with questions about Sunday's game.

Tortorella, who is coaching Team Alfredsson, said he plans on letting Alfredsson and Henrik Lundqvist make all the lineup decisions while he sits back and watches like a fan. It'll be interesting to see if he maintains that stance if Lundqvist starts double shifting Rangers teammate Dan Girardi in the third period.

The first players to take their spots in their podiums are Zdeno Chara, Marian Gaborik, Dennis Wideman, Dion Phaneuf and Jamie Benn.

Stay tuned for more updates on the happenings on media day.
