Capitals defenseman Mike Green was released from the penalty box in time to grab the puck in the neutral zone and fly towards the Florida goal uncontested. As Green skated closer, Tim ‘Get Off My Lawn’ Thomas started to back into his net, lost his footing, and fell on his rear end.
You can guess what came next. Green scored the go-ahead goal putting Washington up 5-4 with 4:34 to go in the third.
Looking kind of like a sea cucumber, Thomas flails his limbs and makes the glove save on Green. That’s entertainment worth coming out of your bunker for, right?!
