SJHN Daily: Adin Hill Has Witty Response to Stars Fans Throwing Popcorn on Him



Credit: Vegas Golden Knights

It’s a hot Hill summer right now.

And not just on the ice, where Adin Hill pitched a Game Three shutout to put the Vegas Golden Knights one win away from the Stanley Cup Final.

On the post-game podium, Hill had a scorching response to Dallas Stars fans throwing popcorn on him as he walked out the American Airlines Center tunnel for the third period.

“I guess everything was hitting me tonight,” he laughed.

The ex-San Jose Sharks netminder has been on a roll since taking over for the injured Laurent Brossoit in the second round. The 27-year-old is on a five-game winning streak, and is 6-1 with a .940 Save % so far this post-season.
