Central Division will face the Pacific Division in the first semi-final game starting at 2:30 pm CT

NHL: NHL All Star Game-Skills Competition Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

After winning the NHL All-Star Skills Competition Saturday evening Atlantic division captain Carey Price selected the Metropolitan division as his team’s first opponent for Sunday’s 3 on 3 tournament. The Atlantic division also elected to play in the later of the first two semi-final games.

"Why not?" Price said. "That seems to be the team that you're going to face in the final anyway, so I figure if we can beat them early, get it out of the way."

This means that the Central division will square of against the Pacific division in the first game of the tournament. Hopefully we will see more of Tarasenko today than we did yesterday.

Games will begin at 2:30 pm CT and be shown on NBC.
