The NHL did a fantastic job on Saturday night showing off just how fun its sport could be when it let its players and their families let loose and have fun.

It’s the only event of the season where you’ll see a Coyotes goalie hugging a Canucks forward; the only event where a 2’0 tall child will score on the world’s best goalie. And it’s the only NHL event where Snoop Dogg will force NBC to apologize to its viewers.

The Atlantic Division may have won the event, but the fans won more. Without further ado, here’s a collection of our favorite images from the NHL All-Star Game Skills Competition. All photos were published by Getty Images and the USA Today.
