Give the NHL credit for one thing: The league understood that its most recent iterations of the All-Star Game were anything but artistic successes.

After a couple of years of letting All-Star "captains" pick their own teams—it was Team Toews over Team Foligno by a 17-12 score in last year's exhibition in Columbus—the league has changed formats once again.

The league has decided to conduct a four-team tournament with the new three-on-three regular-season overtime format as its All-Star Game.

The Atlantic, Metropolitan, Central and Pacific divisions are all represented by 11-man teams that will compete in 20-minute three-on-three games.
