With their season on the line in a crucial 6 home game against the Florida Panthers, the Capitals needed their best players to find a way to succeed. Right winger TJ Oshie did just that with just over a minute left in regulation.
With 1:01 remaining in regulation, and in a power game in the last 61 seconds of what seemed to be the end of the Capitals season, a crazy scramble in front of the net and a stunning display of hand-eye coordination by Anthony led Mantha to tie the hats cats to send the team into overtime.
