The NHL All-Star Game has wrapped up after a long weekend in Nashville.  Country music, John Scott, and 3-on-3 hockey were the main headlines during this event.  The fans in Nashville were fantastic, and the players all seemed to have fun.

So what were the best and worst moments that took place during the 2016 NHL All-Star Game?  Let’s take a look at some of the highlights:

Capitals fans are used to seeing Evgeny Kuznetsov and his patience with the puck.  Kuzya and fellow teammate Nicklas Backstrom showed great chemistry together today.


Penguins star Evgeni Malkin had this sweet breakaway spin-o-rama goal today.  Ben Bishop just had no chance.


He hits public enemy #1 Patrick Kane, and then he follows it up with a breakaway chance.  You cannot make this stuff up.


John Gibson’s big save right here led to a goal at the other end.  Phenomenal athleticism by the Ducks young netminder.


John Scott absolutely destroyed Jeremy Roenick during this interview.  Roenick just looks stunned.


Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo displayed his wonderful sense of humor during the All-Star Game today.  Could he be on to something though?

Best MVP: John Scott


Best Fake Fight: ohn Scott and Patrick Kane


The NHL regular season resumes on Tuesday February 2.  It was a great weekend in Nashville.  Next Year’s NHL All-Star weekend will be heading to Los Angeles.

    The main problem lies in where the fungus is living:
    under the nail. Any kind of injury may affect the foot such as fractures, bruises or trauma.
    A podiatrist may recommend you wear Plantar Fasciitis
    shoes in Dallas TX to relieve foot pain.
