Semyon Varlmov was nominated for the Vezina Trophy on Monday morning in what had to be the high point of his 2013-14 season.
The low point: Back in October, the Colorado Avalanche netminder was arrested on domestic violence charges.
Those charges were later dropped, but dropped is a far cry from forgotten. And with the Avalanche in Minnesota for Game 6, the fans near the glass behind Varlamov decide to needle Varlamov with print outs of his mugshot and the photo from his court appearance after spending the night in jail.
That is cold.
If Varlamov was rattled, he didn't really show it -- although his second goal of the night was an uncharacteristically bad one, as Mikael Granlund's shot snuck through his five-hole.
But it's also textbook hockey trolling, as fans will leave no stone unturned in their attempts to get a rival netminder off his game.
