Remember when we would share laughs when Braden Holtby out-sassed opponents? Those nights are rarer now that the Holtbeast, under the tutelage of Mitch Korn, has found inner-peace.
Former Capital goalie Semyon Varlamov, however: not so much.
Under insane head coach Patrick Roy, Varly is a fierce mama bear in net. When Tom Wilson came uninvited into the blue paint a month back, Varlamov punched Wilson right in the face. Against Dallas on Tuesday, Varly would have none of Vernon Fiddler’s stick-poking.
You wanna poke Russian bear? NO STICK FOR YOU.
I need moar angles. I need literally every angle.
OH YESH. (GIF by SB Nation)
Full video? Sure, why not.
Varly was not whistled for a penalty and after poking him, Fiddler’s only punishment was having to retrieve his stick in the corner.
