ST. LOUIS—Hometown hero Jordan Binnington was a winner in Friday night’s NHL all-star skills competition, in the save streak event that included a surprising twist.
Binnington, who helped the St. Louis Blues win the Stanley Cup in the spring, stopped 10 shots in a row to win the all-star event and deadpanned afterwards that he “expected more.”
He probably didn’t expect what was coming from Tomas Hertl. The San Jose Sharks forward donned a Justin Bieber mask for his attempt — which Binnington stopped — weeks after Binnington challenged the Canadian pop star to a breakaway competition.
Given how locked in Binnington was, he probably would’ve stopped the Biebs, too.
