Sidney Crosby had two goals and three assists, and Henrik Lundqvist of the Rangers pitched a first-half shutout to lead the Metropolitan Division to a 10-5 victory over the Central Division in the N.H.L. All-Star championship round on Saturday night.
Crosby, selected the most valuable player, finished the night with four goals and four assists in two games on the same ice where he won the Conn Smythe Trophy and Stanley Cup three years ago for Pittsburgh. He assisted on Michael Barzal’s goal against Devan Dubnyk just 22 seconds into the championship game and then made it 5-0 in the closing seconds of the first half off a pass from Barzal. Crosby helped seal the game with a goal in the second half that made it 6-2.
Lundqvist stopped 11 of 13 shots in his two games to give the Metropolitan Division its second title in four years of the three-on-three All-Star format and the $1 million prize shared by the winners of the four-team divisional tournament. He made big saves against Gabriel Landeskog and Claude Giroux in his 10 minutes one night after winning the save streak competition in the skills challenge.
