John Scott scores twice, hits, fights, roasts JR, steals show, wins All-Star MVP

It's John Scott's world, and we're all living in it. Let's recap the best All-Star Game in quite a while. Game 1: Atlantic 4, Metropolitan 3 It took just one minute for the Metro to get on the board, when Kris Letang sniped a goal past Roberto Luongo. But the scoring came at a slower pace than expected, as the goaltending was quite exceptional for a 3-on-3 game, with the most memorable save coming from Luongo stopping this blistering shot by Evgeni Malkin. Each team had 22 shots on the game, meaning there were chances aplenty in this game, and the score was within one goal the entire 20...

The fact that the teams were formed based on divisions - and that means Tampa Bay Lightning players would be playing alongside Toronto Maple Leafs. Or, more specifically, Steven Stamkos with Leo Komarov. They're teammates today, and according to Roberto Luongo,...
