New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist teamed up with pal, and tennis great, John McEnroe to show off his tennis skills at the Johnny Mac Tennis Project on Thursday night.

The charity event was held to raise money in an effort to make the sport of tennis accessible to New York City children, who otherwise could not afford to play.

Lundqvist and McEnroe teamed up against World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and actor Ed Norton.

McEnroe and Lundqvist defeated Norton and Djokovic 4-3, by a sudden-death point tiebreaker.
