The Metropolitan Division won the NHL All-Star Game


The Metropolitan Division defeated the Atlantic Division 10-6 and then the Pacific Division 4-3 Sunday in the NHL's 2017 All-Star Game at the Staples Center. 

Philadelphia Flyers' Wayne Simmonds scored three goals, including the game-winning goal with 4:58  left to play in the second half. 

Because of those plays, Simmonds captured the NHL All-Star Game MVP award. 

NHL great Wayne Gretzky, who subbed in as Metropolitan Division head coach, pulled off an impressive move off the ice. 

Just as the Pacific Division thought they had doubled their lead, Gretzky called for a coach's challenge because he claimed Connor McDavid was offsides. Gretzky was right and officials called the goal back, according to Yahoo Sports

The Metropolitan Division left the ice with a $1 million prize.
