The Washington Capitals evened up the Stanley Cup Final at 1-1 with a 3-2 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights on Wednesday night. And the play of the game was a pretty easy choice.
Braden Holtby made an absolutely insane stick save on what appeared to be an easy goal for Vegas’ Alex Tuch with 1:59 remaining in regulation. This is a literal game-saving play from the Capitals’ goaltender:

Holtby stopped 37 of 39 Vegas shots on the night, and was fantastic throughout the high-pressure third period.
