Tyler Seguin picks up goal and assist in the 2020 NHL All-Star Game

ST. LOUIS — Tyler Seguin scored a goal and added an assist playing for the Central Division All-Stars the 2020 NHL All-Star Game.

Seguin set up Winnipeg’s Mark Scheifele for a score with 5:09 in the first. Following Central goals from St. Louis’ David Perron and Chicago’s Patrick Kane, it was his turn to get involved in the scoring action. He beat Vancouver goalie Jacob Markstrom stick side to tie the game at 4.

The goal was the fourth in his All-Star Game career. He had two scores in the 2015 game, and one in 2016.

Seguins’ two points weren’t enough, however, as the Central fell to the Pacific 10-5 in the game. It set up a matchup with the Atlantic All-Stars, who topped the Metropolitan 9-5 in first game, in the final. Boston’s David Pastrnak, the NHL’s goal-scoring leader at the All-Star break, had three goals.

The Pacific would go on to defeat the Atlantic in the final with a more defensive-minded score of 5-4. Pastrnak would end up being named MVP of the night.

Seguin and the rest of the Stars will get back to action on Monday night as they host the Tampa Bay Lightning at the American Airlines Center. Dallas begins the final stretch of the season in third place in the tough Central Division at 58 points, but just 1 point clear of the final Western Conference playoff seeds at 57 points.
