The Washington Capitals are hosting the Ottawa Senators in some afternoon game action ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl festivities, and the game between the Caps and during the second period, a play occurred which could have been labeled a crime scene.

In the opening 5 minutes of the 2nd frame with the Sens up 2-1 on Washington, Caps resident bad boy Tom Wilson thought he had tied the game on a brilliant feed from Evgeny Kuznetsov. As he celebrated on his way around the net, he realized that something obscene had just happened. Sens goaltender Anton Forsberg had found a way to get across and snag a puck that was labeled for the twine.


Wilson absolutely could not believe that he had not buried that opportunity. It was so spectacular that even the broadcast team had a hard time figuring out how Forsberg managed to make the save.


Simply unbelievable play by Forsberg there!
