As expected, David Pastrnak showed up with a smile and his trademark charisma to the NHL All-Star Skills Competition on Friday night at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis.

The NHL's leading scorer and the captain for the Atlantic Division squad garnered a pre-event television interview with NBC Sports analyst Brian Boucher where he joked he'd been practicing for his Shooting Star event for a couple of weeks (he hasn't) after an earlier walk down the All-Star red carpet in a typically stylish blue suit.

Pastrnak finished out of the running in the Shooting Stars event despite his NHL-leading 37 goals at the break, and instead finished with just 10 points while missing out on the 10-point arch in the middle of the ice.

Patrick Kane ended up beating Mitch Marner in sudden death overtime when the two scorers were deadlocked after the initial rounds of the competition.  

On the ice, Pastrnak took part in the goalie "Save Streak" event where he was denied a couple of times on breakaways, which was, unfortunately, more of the same of what Bruins fans have been subjected to in B's shootouts this season.

St. Louis' hometown favorite Jordan Binnington ended up winning that event with ten saves in a row that wowed the crowd after Isles center Mat Barzal won the fastest skating competition and Carolina Hurricanes D-man Jaccob Slavin, who had replaced an injured Dougie Hamilton, won the shooting accuracy competition.

Canadiens D-man Shea Weber won his fourth hardest shot competition with a 106.5-mph slap shot to beat Washington's John Carlson, and that means Zdeno Chara's 108.8-mph bomb still remains the NHL-record in the event.
