Updating you with the latest highlights from the three-on-three tournament.

With a three-on-three tournament on tap to close out the NHL's all star weekend, it was clear that there would be plenty of goals for the fans to check out. We just so happen to have some of them for you in GIF form in case you missed part or all of the tournament, or just want to see them again.

First up was the Metropolitan division taking on the Atlantic division for the right to represent the East in the final. It was Kris Letang who opened the scoring for the Metropolitan division by joining the rush.

Then Erik Karlsson got in on the action, proving that defensemen would be key for scoring in the contest.

Jaromir Jagr scored a pretty decent breakaway goal.

Evgeni Malkin is an absolute savage.

Aaron Ekblad decided to get in on the defensemen scoring action.

The Canadiens own P.K. Subban of course had to get in on that action too. How nice would it be if he got to play with Dylan Larkin in Montreal, by the way?

Subban's goal would prove to be the game winner, and the Atlantic division would represent the East in the Final.

It did not take very long for James Neal to strike in front of his hometown crowd, and give the Central division an early lead. But then it was John Scott, the unlikely hero of this year's festivities, who went to the net with his stick on the ice like his teammates told him to do, and tied things back up for the Pacific division.

Pekka Rinne took a penalty for handling the puck outside of the trapezoid, and Joe Pavelski was all over that.

James Neal was obviously mad that Marc didn't gif his first goal, so he scored again for good measure.

Johnny Gaudreau got that one back pretty quickly though.

John Scott actually laid the body on Patrick Kane a little, and then they decided to have an excellent pretend fight.

Daniel Sedin doesn't miss on the breakaway. There were many breakaways.

As I said, many breakaways, and John Scott even scored his second of the game on one!

John Gibson made a crazy save at one end, and then Johnny Gaudreau made a sweet move at the other.

The Pacific division ended up taking the game by a score of 9-5, and they moved on to play against P.K. Subban and the Atlantic division in the final.

The goals in the final didn't come in bunches like they did during the previous two games, but that was largely due to some great saves like this desperate block by Roberto Luongo.

Corey Perry finally opened the scoring for the Pacific division nearly midway through the second half.

Then Corey Perry "scored" again, but a coach's challenge would disallow the goal in the end.

Team Pacific would get the 1-0 win, and John Scott's team took home the $1 Million that went with it.
