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.
