The NHL All-Star Game is tonight. Are you ready to watch Auston Matthews captain the Atlantic Division team to victory and win a gigantic novelty cheque for $1M dollars?
The format is the same as last year, with division in the east and west facing off in subsequent games, and then a final game to determine the winner. These games will be streamed on NHL TV, or you can watch them the traditional way on CBC, or on Sportsnet.
We’ll have a GDT up at 6:00 p.m.
If you missed last night’s skill competition, Auston Matthews was showing his love for Patrick Marleau.
Tavares won one of the competition for one of the most important skills.
