Lars Eller has come to play this season. The Danish forward is on pace to top his single season career high in both goals and points.
His tenth goal of this season came late in the Caps 3-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens, breathing life into the final minute before the buzzer eventually sounded.
Directly after a Max Pacioretty empty net goal, the Caps once again pulled Phillip Grubauer for an extra skater.
Matt Niskanen got the puck at the left point and placed a pass directly into Eller’s wheelhouse and the center made no mistake, burying a missile top shelf past Antti Niemi.
Here’s a few more angles.
The team had a subdued celebration.
