LOS ANGELES - Two Metropolitan goals in five seconds sunk the Pacific Division's bid for back-to-back NHL All-Star supremacy, falling 4-3 in a tightly-contested final.

"There's definitely a little more ... going a little bit harder than the first game there because you're playing for a pretty big prize," Johnny Gaudreau said. "It's exciting to play for something like that. The guys had a lot of fun and so did I."

Gaudreau ended up with one assist in the final, setting up linemate Bo Horvat's late first period goal. The forwards and their three-on-three defence partner Cam Fowler combined for 13 points in the pair of games they played on Sunday.

"It was great. We played well together," Gaudreau said of this afternoon's partnership. "The coach put the lines together right before we went out and we talked a bit in the locker room, built a little bit of chemistry. It was great and it was a lot of fun."
