Today’s NHL All-Star Game in Tampa begins at 3:30 p.m. ET and can be:
- Seen on TV in the US via NBC (or via stream on NBC Sports Live or the NBC Sports App)
- Seen in Canada via Sportsnet, TVA, and CBC
The Flyers, as you may know, have just one player in today’s All-Star Game, as Claude Giroux will make his fifth appearance (out of the past six games the league has held). He will, however, be looking to uphold the standard set last year by his teammate; last year (the one time this decade in which the NHL had an All-Star Game and Giroux wasn’t in it), Wayne Simmonds, the Flyers’ lone representative, took home All-Star Game MVP honors.
The All-Star Game is a 3-on-3 contest that takes place in tournament format. At 3:30 p.m. ET, the Central Division team and the Pacific Division team will play against each other for 20 minutes. At 4:30 p.m. ET, the Metropolitan Division and Atlantic Division will square off (so, if you have no vested interest in this other than seeing Claude Giroux do good hockey stuff, you can start tuning in then). At 5:30 p.m. ET, the winners of the first two games will square off for the championship, with the winning team getting $1 million to spread across its 11 players.
There will be no power plays in the All-Star Game; any penalties called will be immediately resolved by way of a penalty shot.
