Things be crazy!
Sunday afternoon, beginning at 5:00 PM EST (coverage on NBCSN kicks off at 4:30), the NHL will kick off a new trend in their All Star festivities. Instead of one game with two teams, there will be three 20-minute games, with four All-Star teams based on the league's four divisions.
The Atlantic Division All-Stars will face the Metropolitan Division All-Stars, while the Central Division All-Stars will play against the Pacific Division All-Stars. The winners of these two games will then meet in the All-Star Game Final. The format for all three games will be 3-on-3. If a tie remains after 20 minutes, then it will go directly to a three-round shootout plus extra rounds as needed to determine the winner; there is no standard overtime.
What could possibly go wrong?
The game will be broadcast on NBCSN in the US, and on CBC, Sportsnet, TVA Sports in Canada.
