Despite succeeding on his first three shots, James Neal struggled to connect on his final two and finished third in the Accuracy Shooting challenge, with a score of 14.262 seconds.

Vancouver Canucks rookie — and likely Calder Trophy finalist — Brock Boeser took home the victory after finishing the competition in just 11.136 seconds.

Another B.B. — New Jersey Devils center Brian Boyle — led off with a strong performance, finishing second (11.626).

Win or lose, it is an achievement to even be on the ice during All-Star weekend, and for Neal, this is his third such appearance.

Neal is currently second on the Golden Knights and tied for fifth in the Western Conference with 22 goals so far this season.
