Brooks Laich’s Power-Play Tip-in Proves to Be Difference in Capitals’ Win Over Bruins (Video)


The Bruins made the Capitals sweat it out on Saturday, recording a goal late in the third period to cut the deficit to one. But Washington was able to hold on for a 4-3 win, with Brooks Laich's tip-in tally serving as the game-winner.

Laich's goal came at 17:31 of the second period. With a man advantage, the Capitals demonstrated excellent puck movement and patience until defenseman Dennis Wideman had a favorable lane. The former Bruin then slipped a feed past Dennis Seidenberg and right onto the tape of Laich's stick, leading to the redirect.

NESN's Andy Brickley broke down the goal, which made it 4-2 Washington, using the Amica Coverage Cam. Check out his analysis in the video above.
