With their season on the line in a crucial Game 6 at home against the Florida Panthers, the Capitals needed their best players to find a way out. Right winger TJ Oshie did just that with just over a minute left in regulation time.
With 1:01 to go in regulation time and on the power play in the final 61 seconds of what seemed like the end of the Capitals season, a wild run in front of the net and an incredible display of hand-eye coordination by Anthony Mantha led the Caps to tie the Cats to send the team into overtime.
AND THAT’S WHY THEY CALL IT CAPTAIN AMERICA
