The red carpet set up in Nashville, Tenn., by the NHL for Saturday’s All-Star Skills Competition afforded fans the opportunity to see their favorites up close out of uniform and possibly to snag an autograph or two. One Washington Capitals fan came prepared with a Braden Holtby jersey and got the All-Star goalie to sign. See the moment caught in the photo below:

But maybe not everyone was so impressed by Holtby’s presence. Check out the New York Islanders fan on the right, seeming to shrink from the proximity of the Caps goaltender.

Must be that Metropolitan Division rivalry.
