What was the turning point of the 2018 Stanley Cup Final? If you ask us, it’s when Braden Holtby reached out his stick and made a miraculous save on Alex Tuch with two minutes remaining in Game Two.
“People ask me a lot about The Save in Game Two,” Holtby wrote in the Players’ Tribune. “And for a while, I didn’t really know how to answer. Because you’re not supposed to be in that position in the first place. You never want to be in that position, where you’re making a save in desperation. When I reached out with my stick, he had to shoot it exactly where I thought he’d shoot it. There’s luck involved, for sure.”
After losing Game One, the Capitals would hold on to win Game Two and win the next three games, defeating the Vegas Golden Knights in five games.
The Stanley Cup was finally All Ours.
