The 2018 NHL All-Star Game is almost here and the annual event originates from Tampa Bay. For the third straight season, the All-Star Game format is a 3-on-3 Tournament between the different divisions.

Surprise, surprise: NHL-leading Tampa Bay Lightning has four players on the Atlantic Division roster, the most of any team.

Considering not only Tampa Bay's lightning-hot start to the season (thank you, I'll be here all week) and the fact that they hosting this year's big event, it should come as no shock to see them dominate this roster.

There are a few other stars in the Atlantic, including Carey Price, who is making his 6th All-Star Game appearance, the most of anyone in the division.
