2018 was a big year for Lars Eller. The 29-year-old Danish center signed a 5-year contract in February, saying that he “couldn’t be happier.” Scoring the game-winning goal of Game Five of the Stanley Cup Final was the icing on the cake.
On Monday after his on-ice session, Eller was asked how many times he’s watched that goal. The man they call Tiger did not hide his joy when talking about what will likely be his best career highlight.
“I don’t have a number on it, but a lot,” Eller said smiling and laughing.
“At least 1,000?” a reporter asked.
“I’ll keep watching it,” Eller said. “If I’m in a bad mood, I’ll put it on.”
Well, Lars, here’s your goal called by every outlet that covered the game.
Lars also happily reminisced about the Caps’ Stanley Cup victory with reporters.
“I’ve definitely had some huge moments in my life the past five or six months that I’ll never forget, that’ll always stick with me,” he said. “In Vegas, here, back home.
“It just brings a huge smile to my face, just thinking about it, and I think it always will.”
Same, Lars. Same.
