We’ve had just about every possible pre-game storyline when it comes to this year’s NHL All-Star games.
We’ve had fan voting, joke captains that, somehow, became legitimate stars, players asking not to play and, for good measure, a brand-new format on the ice. That’s right, the All-Star game has been revamped, again, and this year teams will be competing in a 3-on-3 tournament style.
Two divisions will face off against each other in the first round of the event with the winners of each game battling for the championship and a $1 million prize. It’ll be fast, it’ll be different and, with any luck, it’ll be pretty darn fun too.
The event, which is being held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, will get underway at 5 p.m. ET and is being broadcast on NBCSN. Donn’t worry if you’re not near a TV. We’ve got all the ways to watch right here:
