Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby made the save of the year with under two minutes left in Game 2. Had the shot gone in, it would have tied the game.
Holtby’s save singlehandedly won the game for the Caps. If the Golden Knights tied the game and sent it into overtime with this shot, the Caps would have without a doubt lost.
The win evened the series at a game apiece. This series might be a little closer than many had anticipated.
