NHL All-Star Game: When & Where to Watch Hockey's Best in Action

The Islanders announced that John Tonelli will drop the ceremonial first puck at their first post-break game, at Barclays Center Tuesday.

In only their second game of the season, the Caps were out to make a statement. Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin, leading the National Hockey League with 30 goals at 32 years old, would have played for Russian Federation.

Tampa Bay's Nikita Kucherov had three goals in the Atlantic's 7-4 semifinal win over the Metropolitan Division, however the Lightning's young star was shut out in the championship game.

"Everyone seemed to really have a good time". "It's not going to be the same watching the gold medal game".

The ever-important games against the Penguins are always a highlight to the Caps' season.

WFLA's Daisy Ruth attended the event and met fans from many teams across the league. Capitals Coach Barry Trotz added that it could be good for players' bodies, both short- and long-term, to not travel across the world in the middle of an already-trying season. This game was the turning point. "It does provide a little bit more stability [to the season]".

Another game in which the outcome wasn't quite as important as what happened during the game.

It was all Atlantic in the second period. As a result of this injury, Oshie was absent for the next six games for Washington, giving the Caps a huge blow, as one of their best scorers was sidelined for some important games. Boeser previously made $212,500 for making the All-Star team. The Pacific added two empty-net goals with Brent Burns and Neal scoring to seal the 5-2 win. The 20-year-old was the only rookie named to the NHL All-Star Game and he became the first rookie to win MVP of the All-Star Game since Mario Lemieux in 1985. "We got back to the playoffs after the lockout a couple of times, but never got close to an Eastern Conference final or a Stanley Cup final again".

Festivities began Friday with a free outdoor concert headlined by Fitz and the Tantrums and the opening of All-Star PreGame, a three-day fun fest open to the general public as well as fans fortunate enough to land game tickets.
