John Tavares struck four times, while Jakub Voracek notched three goals and three assists as Team Toews triumphed 17-12 over Team Foligno in the NHL All-Star Game in Columbus.

Tavares hit the back of the net twice in the second period as Jonathan Toews' team moved 11-8 in front, and they surged away from Nick Foligno's men in the final stanza with six goals to four.

The two teams went goal-for-goal in the opening period in Ohio with Tavares and Voracek both on the scoresheet for Team Toews, who struck four consecutive goals in the second stanza to set up their victory.

Ryan Johansen, Patrick Kane and Steven Stamkos were the leading scorers for Team Foligno with two goals each.

Toews struck once for his team, while also picking up four assists, but Foligno, who plays for the Columbus Blue Jackets, was less impressive in front of his home crowd, scoring just once and setting up another goal.
