Julien, Tortorella, McLellan to coach NHL All-Star game

Boston's Claude Julien, New York Rangers' John Star Game.

Julien will be the head coach of Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara's team and will be joined by assistants Doug Houda, Doug Jarvis and Geoff Ward.

Tortorella and McLellan will guide the team captained by Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson.

Julien and his crew were awarded a team thanks to the Bruins' Stanley Cup victory in 2011, while Tortorella and McLellan were given a slot thanks to their teams leading their respective conferences through the mid-point of the 2011-12 season.

The game will be played on January 29 at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa, home of the Senators.
