The Florida Panthers had erased two two-goal leads on Monday night, but the Capitals had a chance to finish them off late in the third.
Exiting the penalty box, Mike Green was set on a one-on-zero breakaway. As he neared the paint, Florida goalie Tim Thomas fell– opening up the net for a layup game-winner with deadly casualness.
Except Green put the puck right into Thomas’ glove.
Laughter ensued. Because sometimes you can’t even cry.
Thank goodness the Capitals still won 5-4 or Green would have been the goat, and I don’t mean the greatest of all time.
