ST. LOUIS (AP) - Hockey’s young skill was on display at the NHL All-Star 3-on-3 tournament.
Boston’s 23-year-old David Pastrnak, Edmonton’s 24-year-old Leon Draisaitl and Vancouver’s Elias Pettersson put on an offensive show in the finale. Draisaitl and Pettersson’s Pacific Division team beat Pastrnak’s Atlantic 5-4 Saturday night in the fifth incarnation of 3-on-3 making up the All-Star Game.
Pastrnak was named All-Star MVP after scoring four goals and adding two assists. Pastrnak is the NHL’s leading goal scorer at the All-Star break.
The night was also a showcase of St. Louis hockey in the aftermath of the Blues winning their first Stanley Cup title.
