NHL All-Star game 2022 Live Weekend Game preview
The NHL All-Star Game has seen many make-ups but seems to have settled on the 3-on-3 division format that was adopted in 2016. In this style, the four teams each are comprised of players from the respective divisions, consisting of nine skaters and a pair of goalies per squad. The teams then compete in a semi-final tournament bracket, with the two winners then playing each other for the All-Star Game championship and a $1 million prize for the winning team.
The puck drops at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for the first game of the three-on-three tournament at 3 p.m. ET. For the sixth consecutive time, the NHL is conducting a bracket-style event that pits division against division in two 20-minute mini-games, with the winners facing off in the final.

NHL All-Star Game 2022 picks
Severance is not picking the Metropolitan Division to win it all, noting the team lacks the offensive firepower necessary to take the crown. It also will be without goal-scoring wizard Alex Ovechkin, as the Washington Capitals superstar will miss the event due to COVID-19.
