Capitals Vs. Bruins, 2012 NHL Playoffs Game 6: Boston, Washington Head To Overtime As Regulation Ends In 3-3 Tie

The Boston Bruins were five minutes away from forcing a Game 7, but Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin had other ideas. Ovechkin scored with 4:52 remaining in regulation to help Game 6 of this Bruins, Capitals series head to a sudden-victory overtime period tied at 3-3.

Trailing 3-2, after Boston took a one-goal advantage with a stellar, hustle goal by Andrew Ference with 8:03 remaining, Ovechkin collected the puck off a faceoff and somehow found space between the five-hole of Bruins' goaltender Tim Thomas.

Here's at look at Ference's tally, which came off a forced turnover by Tyler Seguin.

Regulation ends with the Capitals out-shooting the Bruins 35-25, while Thomas has 35 saves for Boston.
