It was a big day for Flyers captain Claude Giroux and the Metro division, which defeated the Central, 5-3, in the final round of its 3-on-3 tournament in Vegas.
Giroux was named MVP and received a new Honda Passport for scoring three goals in the tournament, including two goals in the championship final.
The players split a $1 million prize. It’s the third time the Metro has won the All-Star Game in the six seasons that it’s used a 3-on-3 tournament format.
“On the bench, we had a blast today. Everybody was having a good time. Guys were yelling to play defense and win battles and block shots. We just had fun today,” Giroux said.
