The All-Star festivities get underway in Tampa today, and so naturally there were puppies.

And a party:

Today is the fun part of the event, the skills competition, and this news popped up yesterday:

This is the NHL though, so there’s no real details other than that.

The skills event is underway at 7 p.m. tonight.

There is a red carpet event tomorrow at 1 p.m. and the game, or games really starts at 3:30 p.m. The All-Star Game will be broadcast on CBC, Sportsnet and TVA in Canada and NBC in the United States.

If you’re more into AHL hockey, their All-Star game is Monday night with the skills competition on Sunday. It is on television and streamed for free, details in their post here.

So are you going to watch?

Will you watch the All-Star Game?
