2012 NHL All-Star Game: TV Schedule, Announcers And More

When the Chicago Blackhawks' two All-Stars take the ice on Sunday, they'll be in a familiar situation as teammates. Both Marian Hossa and Patrick Kane were taken by Team Chara in the NHL's second annual draft to determine the sides for the All-Star Game. The Blackhawks' duo will be joined by players like Phil Kessell and Evgeni Malkin as well as hometown rookie Colin Greening of the Ottawa Senators. Team Chara is likely to play the role of the villain in Ottawa, as their opponents, Team Alfredsson, features four Senators, including Erik Karlsson and Jason Spezza.

Hossa and Kane— the latter of which donned a Superman cape in Saturday night's Skills Competition— have some big shoes to fill, as last year's All-Star Game MVP was Chicago's Patrick Sharp, who tallied a goal and an assist in the 2011 tilt.

Game date/time: Sunday, January 29, 2012, 3 p.m. CST

Location: Scotiabank Place, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

TV: NBC

Announcers: Mike "Doc" Emrick, Ed Olcyzk, Pierre McGuire, Jeremy Roenick
