Islanders All-Star John Tavares participated in the breakaway challenge during tonight’s NHL All-Star Skills Competition. While Tavares’s first attempt was less than stellar, he mad up for it in the second and third attempts. During his second attempt Tavares managed to lift the puck up and bat it out of the air, while goaltender Carey Price was “Tebowing.”

In case you missed it, here are Tavares’s two attempts courtesy of Kevin Schultz of Islanders Point Blank.





And if you wanna watch the entire breakaway challenge again here you go!
