The Atlantic Division team booked its ticket to the final of the 2020 NHL All-Star Game, defeating the Metropolitan Division contingent 9-5 in the first three-on-three game of Saturday night's festivities.

Boston Bruins forward David Pastrnak and Ottawa Senators winger Anthony Duclair each recorded hat tricks for the Atlantic, while Detroit Red Wings forward Tyler Bertuzzi and Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman tallied four points apiece.

Columbus Blue Jackets rearguard Seth Jones led the Metro squad with a four-point effort of his own, and New Jersey Devils center Nico Hischier collected three points, including a pair of goals.

Tampa Bay Lightning netminder Andrei Vasilevskiy, who entered the game in the second period, stopped six of seven shots to earn the win.

The Atlantic is now 3-2 against the Metro since the introduction of the divisional three-on-three format in 2016. The Atlantic, which has never won the event, will take on the Pacific Division team in the finals.
