Jakub Vrana, TJ Oshie, and Lars Eller score in final minute and overtime to complete insane comeback against Sharks
The game was supposedly over. With a minute left in the third period, the San Jose Sharks scored an empty-net goal to make it 4-2. Capitals fans began filing for the exits. But they would have reason to return seconds later.
Jakub Vrana and TJ Oshie both scored 6-on-5, last-minute goals to push overtime. Then in the extra session, Lars Eller scored on a two-on-one break to give the Capitals the win. Washington scored three goals in two minutes and 48 seconds.
“That’s the best [comeback] I have ever seen since I’ve been here,” Nic Dowd, one of the team’s goalscorers on the day, said after the game. “That was pretty epic.”
