We’ve been talking plenty about Saturday’s impressive Washington Capitals comeback win over the New York Islanders. Here’s one more.
The Washington Capitals comeback was incredible but was it the biggest comeback of the season. Back in October, the team took on the Vancouver Canucks on the road and overcame a 5-1 deficit only to win it in the shootout round. Pretty cool, right?
Well there was also a game earlier this month that looked like the Washington Capitals were going to drop. Against the San Jose Sharks at Capital One Arena, the Capitals trailed by two goals with under a minute to go.
Then there was this past Saturday. This game was more significant given a divisional game against the former bench boss.
The Capitals were down 4-1 in a hostile environment. Instead of packing things up, the Caps rallied with five unanswered goals to stun the Isles with a regulation win.
6-4 was the final score and there were several players that impacted the game. Here is our top 3 heroes.
