NHL Skills Competition 2015: Team Toews falls short to Team Foligno, 25-19

New, comment

The majestic power of Jonathan Toews couldn't lead his group to a victory at the Skills Competition.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The NHL All-Star Weekend continued Saturday night with Team Foligno topping Team Toews, 25-19, in the Skills Competition. The former had a big lead early in the event and never relented, holding on for a relatively easy win in front of an excited Columbus crowd.

Some of the highlights of the night included Ryan Johansen participating in an Ohio State jersey during the breakaway section, much to the pleasure of the Buckeye-obsessed audience, then seeing the Blue Jackets star help a little kid get involved in the event. Jakub Voracek and Johnny Gaudreau got in on the fun later, too, mimicking Johansen and the kid with a fairly hilarious routine.

It wasn't all good, of course -- Team Toews was losing 6-0 after two events, 10-1 after three events, 12-2 after four events and 15-4 after five events. A bit of a rally came during the big shootout section, with Toews winning that event, 15-10, but it was too late to get the win.

Here are the full results from Saturday night in Columbus:
