SAN JOSE William Nylander Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Sidney Crosby now has one more reason to have good memories of the Shark Tank.Crosby had two goals and three assists to win the All-Star MVP, and Henrik Lundqvist pitched a first-half shutout to lead the Metropolitan Division to a 10-5 victory over the Central Division in the championship round of the NHL All-Star game Saturday night.Crosby finished the night with four goals and four assists in two games on the same ice where he won the Conn Smythe Trophy and Stanley Cup three years ago for Pittsburgh.“I have some great memories here for sure,” he said. “It’s always been a tough place to play. Obviously, when you win in a rink and have those memories, it’s something you think about every time you go there. Being in that dressing room, it’s automatic to bring you back to some of those moments.”The memories aren’t nearly as sweet for the Sharks fans, who booed Crosby when he won the award, joining Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Bobby Orr, Joe Sakic and Jean Beliveau as the only players to win the Conn Smyth Zach Hyman Jersey , the Hart Trophy and All-Star MVP.“It’s cool,” Crosby said. “You play and you watch as a kid growing up and you see that presentation so it’s pretty cool. I had a lot of fun today.”Lundqvist stopped 11 of 13 shots in his two games to give the Metropolitan Division its second title in four years of the three-on-three All-Star format and the $1 million prize shared by the winners of the four-team divisional tournament.Mathew Barzal of the New York Islanders added two goals and three assists in the final game.Mikko Rantanen had two goals and Colorado teammate Gabriel Landeskog added one for the Central. Landeskog finished with four goals and three assists, while Rantanen had four goals and two assists.“There’s more pace obviously when it’s the final and there’s a million dollars on the line. A lot of guy were going a little bit harder but it’s good for the fans,” Rantanen said. “Just too bad that we were not that ready to play.”Crosby assisted on Barzal’s goal against Devan Dubnyk just 22 seconds into the championship game and then made it 5-0 in the closing seconds of the first half off a pass from Barzal. Crosby also assisted on Pittsburgh teammate Kris Letang’s goal in the first half and then helped seal the game with a goal in the second half that made it 6-2.Lundqvist made big saves against Landeskog and Claude Giroux in the period one night after winning the save streak competition in the skills challenge.“It was good defense, good structure,” Lundqvist said. “That helps, especially three on three. Honestly, I thought we had pretty good structure, so much skill up front, so many goals. You don’t get surprised, you get impressed.”The first time the All-Star game came to San Jose in 1997 Alex Burmistrov Jersey , hometown favorite Owen Nolan capped the night by calling his shot and pointing to the spot where he completed a hat trick that delighted the Shark Tank.Sharks fans didn’t have as much to cheer for in the return, even though their three All-Stars started the night on the ice together for the Pacific. The Central blitzed the Pacific early for its first win in four years in this format, scoring seven goals on nine shots against John Gibson in the first half of the period in a 10-4 victory.Gibson, who plays for the rival Anaheim Ducks, drew derisive chants from the fans who later called for Vegas’ Marc-Andre Fleury to take over.“Anytime you play it’s a rivalry and the fans take it personally. That’s what makes it fun,” Gibson said. “You’re still at All-Star game and you’re out there with some of the best players in the league. Stuff’s going to happen.”Landeskog had a hat trick and an assist and Roman Josi had three assists and a goal for the Central.Pekka Rinne and Dubnyk combined to stop 23 of 27 shots with Dubnyk providing one of the biggest highlights with a glove save that robbed Connor McDavid on a breakaway.The Metropolitan Division won the second semifinal 7-4 thanks to a tiebreaking goal by Letang with 3:38 to play. Sebastian Aho added an insurance goal seconds after Braden Holtby stopped John Tavares in close.NOTES: The NHL honored four women’s hockey players who participated in All-Star weekend, Kendall Coyne Schofield and Brianna Decker of the United States, and Rebecca Johnston and Renata Fast of Canada. The four women got a standing ovation and a $25,000 donation in their name to a hockey charity of their choice. Coyne Schofield was the first woman to compete in the skills competition on Friday night, finishing seventh in the fastest skater competition. Claus Andersen/Getty ImagesThe Los Angeles Kings traded Tanner Pearson to the Pittsburgh Penguins forCarl Hagelin, the team announced Wednesday.In discussing the move http://www.officialcanucks.com/authentic-adidas-bo-horvat-jersey , Kings general manager Rob Blake alluded to the team's5-11-1 record, which has Los Angeles sitting last in the Western Conference."Our team is obviously not in a position that we are comfortable with in terms of how we are playing," Blake said. "This is a change to our lineup that gives us an additional amount of speed. With Carl Hagelin, his No. 1 asset is speed and getting to holes, and we think he will play a big role on the penalty kill for us going forward."Hagelin has one goal and two assists through 16 games this season. The 30-year-old has generallybeen on the icewhen the Penguins found themselves down a man or two, and Pittsburgh rankssixthin penalty kill percentage (84.0).Los Angeles, meanwhile, is down at 21st (78.4 percent), so Hagelincould help in that regard.Some wondered whether Hagelin might also provide value to the Kings in the form of a trade asset later in the year.Sean Shapiro seanshapiroFrom afar it feels like the Kings made this trade with the idea that they could later flip Hagelin before the deadline.Stephen Whyno SWhynoHagelin can be a free agent this summer. Wouldn鈥檛 be at all surprised if Kings flipped him to a contender closer to trade deadline.The Kings could walk away as the winners of this trade, especially if Los Angeles flips Hagelin for a solid return down the road. Early on, though Youth Brandon Sutter Jersey , the Penguins appear to be at the better end of the deal.Sean Tierney ChartingHockeySo, Hagelin and Pearson have been equally brutal so far this year. But Pearsons 26 y.o., locked-in, and cheaper, while Hagelins a 30 y.o. UFA. Unless Im missing something, this is an easy win for PIT. bErfzVQZH5Jesse Marshall jmarshfofThe Penguins: 1. Save Money2. Get Younger3. Get a player that produces more points than Hagelin at 5v5.Great trade, IMO.Pearson has just one assist on the season, but he averaged 40 points per season over the previous three years. Playing alongside Evgeni Malkin andPatric Hornqvist could help Pearson rediscover his scoring touch.The Penguins will also have the benefit of knowing Pearson's cost over the next few years. Hagelin is making$4 millionthis year before hitting free agency, while Pearson will earn$3.75 millionin 2019-20 and 2020-21 before he becomes a free agent.Much like the Kings, the Penguins are playing below expectations. They are7-6-3 and 14th in the Eastern Conference. This move doesn't represent a significant shakeup for Pittsburgh but could help the team improve around the margins.
