One for the money, two for the show, three for the champion and go All-Star Caps go!

How it's gonna work, via Broad Street Hockey:

It's a 3-on-3 tournament, with each team made up of 11 players: six forwards, three defensemen and two goalies. Three games will be played in total. First, the Atlantic Division team will face the Metropolitan Division team, and the winner will advance to a final against the winner of the game between the Central and Pacific Divisions.

The games will be 20 minutes long, with two 10 minute periods separated by a hard whistle at the 10 minute mark. Teams will switch ends at that mark. Penalties will be one minute in length, and all NHL rules apply, so fourth skaters could be added during power plays as teams are not allowed to ice less than three at a time.

All goals will be confirmed by video review, and NHL hockey ops will initiate coach's challenges if needed. There will be no overtime in the event of a tie -- right to the shootout after the 20 minutes are up.

The winning team will earn $1 million in prize money, divided among the players on that team.

Puck drop for Metro/Atlantic is 5:00pm, Central/Pacific 6:00pm, East vs. West at 7:00pm
