Two goals and two assists for McDavid in NHL All-Star game

Two goals and two assists for McDavid in NHL All-Star game

NHL All-Star games are always a bit of a joke, but if you don't have anything else going on, there's no reason not to watch.

The Metropolitan Division also had some serious brainpower behind the bench in Wayne Gretzky and Paul Coffey.

"It meant a lot", said Simmonds.

Indeed, the 3-on-3 format of this revamped midseason showcase can lead to weird hockey.

Over the weekend's festivities celebrating the league's centennial, Panthers winger Jaromir Jagr was named as one of the NHL's 100 greatest players. Crosby didn't score until 6:26 had elapsed in the second period of the opening game, while Ovechkin netted his lone goal of the afternoon with one second left against the Atlantic Division. The move paid off, literally, as Gretzky's team ultimately won and claimed the $1 million prize.

Simmonds' clutch performance in the two Pacific victories earned him the MVP nod in his first All-Star appearance. Right off the faceoff following Atkinson's goal, Simmonds playfully flicked the helmet of Drew Doughty, his former Los Angeles teammate, to distract the Norris Trophy-winning defenseman. "That seems to be the team that you're going to face in the final anyway, so I figure if we can beat them early, get it out of the way". He is not exactly a goal-scorer first but knows how to put the puck in the net when he can.

"I haven't been here for six years", Simmons said.

"It was unbelievable", Simmonds told NBC Sports.

"You leave a place, you don't expect to come back and get all the cheers as I did today", Simmonds said. I know I had a lot of die-hard fans here and I really appreciate those people.

Scott was in Los Angeles to sign copies of his new book, "A Guy Like Me: Fighting to Make the Cut" and said he is content with his new job of full-time father.

In the final event determining the matchups for Sunday's All-Star Game, nine skaters and two goaltenders from the Pacific and the Atlantic faced off in the shootout. "Probably one of the best days of my life". Essentially a version of the on-ice promotions all around the world that turn hockey into a version of miniature golf, the NHL stars largely missed the tiny targets until Smith let loose with his stunner. They participated in a ceremonial puck drop with the current All-Stars.

P.K. Subban got the Central on the board to start the second half of the game, but Johnny Gaudreau and Joe Pavelski made it 7-2 shortly thereafter.

Center ice: Wayne Simmonds opened up with a goal in the lower corner, giving the Metropolitan their first point. However, Gretzky challenged the goal, and after a reply review, the goal was disallowed for an offside penalty.

"We're sitting here right now, so - so far, so good".

While the four Chicago Blackhawks representatives and members of the Kings' California rivals were booed mercilessly during pregame introductions - Sharks goalie Martin Jones, another friend and former LA teammate of Simmonds, got the best of it with a 50-50 mix of cheers and abuse - Simmonds was greeted with universal admiration despite having played for the Flyers for almost six seasons now. That was the game changer. That was the decision. Hockey is for everybody, so it's a great sport. He pulls that card.

In the semi-final round, Simmonds scored the first two goals for the Metropolitan Division in a 10-6 win over the Atlantic Division.

"The guys are here on their break having fun", Boudreau said. "You see it on TV, I've been watching it forever, at every All-Star Game". He slipped behind the Metropolitan defense, got a pinpoint long pass from Anaheim's Ryan Kesler and beat Sergei Bobrovsky's poke check with a nimble stop and a push shot while falling to his knees.
