Lars Eller scored the biggest goal in Washington Capitals history. On June 7, 2018, Eller sniffed out a Brett Connolly rebound sitting behind Marc-Andre Fleury’s backside and shot the puck into the back of the net. The goal gave the Capitals a 4-3 lead with 7:37 remaining in Game Five of the Stanley Cup Final. The Capitals would go on to win a championship for the very first time.
That valuable puck, however, did not travel home either with NHL officials or the Capitals.
