via the NHL PR department,

The brightest stars from around the League will hit the ice for the 2020 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Saturday which will see a return of the 3-on-3 tournament format, the same used for each of the past four seasons.

* Each game during Saturday’s All-Star tournament will be 20 minutes in length with teams changing ends at the 10-minute mark of each contest. Games that are tied after 20 minutes will be decided in a shootout.

* The winners of each semifinal game will meet in the final to determine the overall tournament champion with a prize pool of $1 million to be paid in its entirety to the tournament’s winning team.

* The first semifinal is an Eastern Conference showdown pitting the Atlantic Division, who have more goals in 2019-20 than any of the four teams participating on Saturday led by Boston’s David Pastrnak (37 goals) and Buffalo’s Jack Eichel (28 goals), against a Metropolitan Division squad that features Washington’s John Carlson, who leads all defensemen and ranks 10th overall in League scoring with 13-47—60 this season. Carlson’s teammate and St. Louis fan-favorite T.J. Oshie will also represent the Metropolitan Division.

Below, feel free to comment on tonight's action.

Also, NBCSports.com & the NBC Sports app will have a digital-only broadcast with new puck & player tracking technology.
