The Washington Capitals are missing their main Center player, Evgeny Kuznetsov, after he injured his left arm. Even though this leaves the Capitals a bit at a loss, their head coach, Barry Trotz, thinks it's a turning
point in the series for them. He truly believes that this type of injury (Kuznetsov should be just fine) during the finals can either make or break a team. Trotz told ESPN-- "You get an all-in mentality. I know how resilient this group has been all year." The team truly stepped up and played well together, blocking, shooting, and protecting each other.
Washington Capitals celebrate.
