Tom Wilson credited with brilliant defensive play on Quinn Hughes that sprung Lars Eller on OT game-winner
Vancouver Canucks defenseman Quinn Hughes is one of the most elusive and electrifying young players in the NHL. But Friday against the Capitals, Hughes turned the puck over to Tom Wilson after the Capitals’ forward played sensational defense on the young defensive star along the boards. Wilson then passed the puck ahead and sprung Lars Eller and John Carlson on a two-on-one break.
Eller finished the play by going five-hole on Canucks goaltender Thatcher Demko to give the Caps a 4-3 OT win.
