Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Tristan Jarry had a pretty good day. He didn’t get a brand new Honda at the 2022 NHL All-Star Game, but the Metro Division won the ASG, and the goalie looked pretty good while shutting down high-grade chances. This season, the Montreal Canadiens will have one less big name on the NHL trade market. And Vegas fans earned some love from around the Metropolitan Division when they booed bruising Washington Capitals winger Tom Wilson.
Oh, what the heck, I know you care about Tristan Jarry, but you want to see Vegas boo Tom Wilson…
