After the league’s brightest stars put their talent on display in the skills competition last night, the players will skate in the All-Star Game tonight. As has been the format since 2016, the All-Stars will be skating on teams comprised of players within their division in a three-on-three tournament.
The Atlantic Division representatives will be squaring off with their Metropolitan Division counterparts, and the Central Division All-Stars will go head to head with the best of the Pacific Division. The winner of those games will face off in the finals. The Pacific and Metropolitan Divisions have rotated victories for each of the last four seasons, so the Atlantic and Central teams will look to earn their first All-Star Game crowns in St. Louis.
After participating in the fastest skater competition last night, Chris Kreider will skate for the Metropolitan Division team as the Blueshirts only representative this weekend. He’ll look to do his part as the Metropolitan All-Stars look to win the game for the second consecutive season. With the Rangers remaining off the ice until January 31st, tonight’s game will be the last chance for Blueshirts fans to see any of their favorite players until next Friday.
Enjoy the game!
