Henrik Lundqvist was not the only New York area athlete to impress at the NHL All-Star Game on Saturday.
Islanders' Mathew Barzal scored two goals and finished the day with four assists while Devils' Kyle Palmieri also had a goal and an assist in the two games they both played for Team Metropolitan, which won the 3-on-3 style tournament with a 10-5 victory over the Central.
Barzal and Palmieri both scored in the first period of the NHL All-Star Game final, with Barzal setting the tone with a wrister 22 seconds into the game.
Palmieri made it 4-0 with a goal of his own at the 8:16 mark of the first period.
Barzal chipped in with an assist to Matt Letang to make it 3-0 then found All-Star Game MVP Sidney Crosby to help make it 5-0 by the end of the period.
The Islanders center assisted Crosby again in the second period and closed his day with an empty-net goal at 7:16 into the second and final period to give Team Metropolitan a 9-3 lead.
Barzal and Palmieri each had an assist earlier in the day during the semifinal game to help the Metropolitan team top the Atlantic team, 7-4. >> Box Score
