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.

Washington’s third goal came on this Brooks Orpik goal in the third period, which also featured Lars Eller’s third point of the night:

The series now heads to DC, with Game 3 set for Saturday night at Capital One Arena.
