The Boston Bruins had to feel pretty good about themselves going into the first intermission of Tuesday’s game against the Washington Capitals with a 3-0 lead. Their mood changed by the end of this contest.
The Capitals have been surging lately, but they need every point they can get after digging a sizable hole for themselves to start the season. So they kept fighting in the second period and clawed their way into overtime.
Then, just as the overtime period was getting underway, Eric Fehr attempted to skate in between Boston Bruins defensemen Dennis Seidenberg and Dougie Hamilton as they closed in on him from either side.
Fehr ended up losing his footing in the process, but still managed to get off the deciding shot while falling down.
You can see the play below:
Even with that victory, Washington is still tied for last place in the Eastern Conference. As impressive as this win was, they have a lot of work ahead of them if they want to get back into the playoff race.
