Coach Vigneault will coach All Star Game If Canucks win tonight
Vancouver Canucks coach Alain Vigneault will be the behind the bench at the All-Star Game - provided his team defeats the host Florida Panthers on Monday.
Should the Canucks fall to the Panthers, San Jose Sharks coach Todd McLellan will earn the final coaching spot based on his team's points percentage.
New York Rangers coach John Tortorella has wrapped up the Eastern Conference's spot. He will be joined by either Vigneault or McLellan against Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien and his assistants.
Julien is guaranteed the spot by virtue of the Bruins winning the Stanley Cup in 2011.
