The Save: Braden Holtby’s brilliant stop on Alex Tuch gives Capitals win in Game Two of Stanley Cup Final
Twenty years ago, the Washington Capitals made the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in franchise history after Joe Juneau scored in overtime against Domink Hasek. But the Capitals couldn’t get it done in the 1998 Stanley Cup Final, getting swept in four games as the Detroit Red Wings repeated as champions.
Two decades later, the Caps are back in the championship round, and they’ve already made franchise history. After falling 6-4 to the Vegas Golden Knights in Game One, the Capitals held on to win Game Two 3-2.
Braden Holtby’s brilliant stick save on Alex Tuch pushed the Caps over the finish line. The victory gave the Caps its first Cup Final win ever.
