KANATA -- When Marian Gaborik of the New York Rangers scored the first goal for Team Chara during their 12-9 victory over Team Alfredsson in the 2012 NHL All-Star Game, his celebration wasn't a spur of the moment idea.
Gaborik channeled Artem Anisimov's celebration against the Tampa Bay Lightning in a December game -- one that sparked a mini-brawl between the teams.
"We planned that actually," said Team Chara teammate and Slovakian countryman Marian Hossa. "He told me about it so I kind of knew when he was going to score. Especially, he want to score on Hank [Henrik Lundqvist]. I was laughing when he pulled it off."
