Gretzky, Team Metropolitan win NHL All-Star Game

How about Atkinson and Simmonds?

Cam Atkinson and Wayne Simmonds scored five seconds apart in the second half to lift the Metropolitan Division to a 4-3 victory against the Pacific Division in the championship game of theĀ 2017 NHL All-Star Game.

Wayne Simmonds, who was named MVP, took a pass from Taylor Hall and scored on Mike Smith with 4:58 remaining to give Team Metropolitan a 4-3 lead.

The team will split the $1 million prize.

The Pacific Division thought it had gone ahead 4-2 at 3:24 of the second half on a shot from Kesler, but the goal was disallowed after Metropolitan coach Wayne Gretzky challenged and video review determined that McDavid was offside. Coach Wayne Gretzky was filling in for John Tortorella, who couldn’t make it due to family reasons.

The Pacific Division tried to retain their title as All-Star Game champs, but they couldn’t hold back Team Metropolitan.
