The Format:

The NHL has changed the All-Star game format to three on three, with a team from each Division (even though they only have two jerseys, not four). Each East division will play each other and they will face off against the winner of the West. The biggest change is that there's a reward for the winners: $1,000,000.00

The Game:

The games are 20 minutes long, so we'll have 2x games to find the conference winners and 1 final game for the champion. It seems to be with how the teams are set up they'll roll 2F and 1 D on each line. Goalies will probably play 10 min each.

The game kicks off at 5PM tonight. It's new, it's more interesting, let's see if the ratings match the amount of words spilled on this bloody thing.
