Let’s be honest. Some of us feel that the NHL skills competition is the best part of All-Star weekend. Some of us are not entirely wrong.
This year, the event, which will take place on Saturday night will pit some of the leagues top names against each other in a series of six different skill-based contests. The winners of each contest will score points for their respective divisions with the victors earning some serious bragging rights on and off the ice.
The event will be broadcast at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN in the United States and on CBC, Sportsnet and TVA Sports in Canada. Read on for the lowdown on how to watch the entire competition, even if you’re not near a TV:
