Marcus Johansson Takes Advantage of Bruins Sloppy Defense to Score Goal (Video)

The Washington Capitals really took it to the Bruins offensively on Thursday night. But the Bruins didn't respond well, playing some sloppy defense at times.

Capitals forward Marcus Johansson took advantage of the poor defensive effort, and more than made up for the absence of Nicklas Bakcstrom with a sweet goal late in the first period.

Johansson's goal combined with some unbelievable goaltending by Braden Holtby helped propel the Caps to a 2-1 win and to tie the series at 2-2, heading back to Boston.

Check out the goal in the video above.
