The Caps have taken the lead in Game Two thanks to — and I hope you’re sitting down — a John Carlson slapshot.
I know, right?!
— Washington Capitals (@Capitals) April 16, 2017
During a second period power play made possible by the fourth line, John Carlson had an open lane. And then, get this, he shot it.
The boards behind the net winced, expecting impact, but impact never came. Instead, the puck went into the net, which is where goals are born.
The goal, which was not a missed shot, was made by John Carlson, who took the shot and put it on the net, and then it went in.
It did not go wide.
Caps lead the Leafs.
