The All-Star Weekend offers a unique chance for NHL players to set aside their rivalries and collaborate. However, as soon as the festivities conclude, things go back to normal, with players quickly reverting to their usual rivalries.


Matthews and Draisaitl Get Back to Being Rivals Right After All-Star Weekend

Only a day after the All-Star Weekend, an altercation between Auston Matthews and Leon Draisaitl unfolded on Instagram. After winning the game and the MVP title, Matthews expressed his gratitude towards Toronto with a post.

The situation escalated when Draisaitl left a comment on Matthews' post, to which Matthews responded rather bluntly.

Check out what they said:
