The Florida Panthers held their first event of NHL All-Star Week on Sunday morning as they organized a beach cleanup in Fort Lauderdale.
There is plenty more to come.
Today is the one day without any events with All-Star Week culminating with the 3-on-3 tournament in Sunrise on Saturday afternoon.
The schedule for the game is now out as the first game will pit the All-Stars from the Western Conference (Pacific vs. Central divisions) going first with the Eastern Conference teams (Atlantic vs. Metropolitan) going second.
The All-Star Game is scheduled to start at 3 p.m. on Saturday.

It looks like the Pittsburgh Penguins could use themselves a new goalie.
But who could they get?
— Perhaps the Vegas Golden Knights could help out.
— The Washington Capitals lost in Toronto on Sunday giving the Panthers something to smile about on their first day off.
— The Boston Bruins are now on a bit of a downturn. After losing to the Panthers on Saturday night, they got beat 4-1 by the Hurricanes on Sunday.

— If it takes 96 points to make the playoffs this season, the Detroit Red Wings are off pace to make it.
