How to watch NHL All-Star Game today: Time, TV channel, storylines

Sporting News

The Metropolitan Division All-Stars seek to hold on to their 3-on-3 tournament crown when the league's best take the ice for the 2020 NHL All-Star Game on Jan. 25 at St. Louis' Enterprise Center.

Last year, the Metro team defeated the Central 10-5 in the All-Star game final and Sidney Crosby won the event's MVP award. He won't be available to vye for MVP again, but other Metropolitan Division stars (like the New York Islanders' Mat Barzal) will pick up the slack.

Some eyes will wander to some intra-division controversy on the Pacific team: in the wake of the Zack Kassian-Matthew Tkachuk kerfuffle, Edmonton Oilers star Leon Draisaitl told reporters he would "probably get off the ice" if he has to play with Tkachuk during the All-Star game. Tkachuk, for his part, only said he looks forward to playing with his talented rivals in Draisaitl and McDavid, and Pacific Division coach Rick Tocchet (Arizona Coyotes) said he'll stay away from the issue as best as he can.

What is the 2020 NHL All-Star game schedule?

Teams from each division will face off in a two-round 3-on-3 tournament consisting of 20-minute games. The two Eastern Conference teams (Atlantic and Metropolitan) will face off first, while the Western Conference teams (Central and Pacific) meet in the second game. Teams will change ends at the 10-minute mark of each game, and any tie games after 20 minutes will be decided by shootouts.

The winners of each game will then face off for the title and $1 million in prize money.
