During the All-Star Game yesterday, Tyler Seguin picked up two assists for the Central Division, but it wasn’t enough to help his team beat the Pacific.
But don’t worry, the Central players didn’t take the loss too hard.
Quote of weekend from Vladimir Tarasenko, when asked about the #NHLAllStar Central loss:— Greg Wyshynski (@wyshynski) January 29, 2017
“I really can’t talk about this game seriously.”
In the afternoon’s second tilt, the Metropolitan squad beat the Atlantic.
And then, in the final matchup, the Metropolitan Division squeaked by the Pacific.
Thanks to his three goals, Wayne Simmonds won MVP honors (and, of course, a car).
There won’t be any games tonight, but the Stars will be back at practice this afternoon.
Currently scheduled for 2 p.m. in Frisco Monday, I believe. https://t.co/beaXGyfstM— Mike Heika (@MikeHeika) January 29, 2017

The Dallas Stars’ Tyler Seguin pointed out his team’s brutal 3-on-3 record this season and wondered if nixing shootouts was thus a bad idea, but he was mainly kidding.
“I do enjoy 3-on-3, so if I can find a way to transition that in real games when they mean something when guys are a team, then yeah, I’d like to see that,” he said. “But we’ve had one shootout game in the last 88 or 87 games. We just set a record. So I think the 3-on-3 is working. So many games are ending that way.”
The NHL’s got Bieber jokes.
