The Washington Capitals’ loss to the New York Islanders Sunday afternoon, just 15 seconds into overtime of game three, was excruciating. One group of fans happened to capture their agony on video, and have shared their priceless results with the world.
Brett, Sean, and John had nearly destroyed their Fairfax, Va., basement celebrating Nicklas Backstrom‘s game-tying goal in the third period. During intermission they set up a webcam in the hopes of capturing an even more crazed reaction if the Caps could pull out an overtime win. Instead, they watched John Tavares chip a loose puck past Braden Holtby to give the Islanders a 2-1 series lead.
