GOTTA SEE IT: Kuemper Falls Off Capitals Bench After Trying To Catch Puck
Washington Capitals goaltender Darcy Kuemper had quite an adventure as he fell off the bench in the third period.
WASHINGTON — On his night off, Darcy Kuemper had a bit of an adventure during the third period of the Washington Capitals' tilt with the Nashville Predators, and it led to him falling on his back and off of the bench.
At the start of a third-period power play, the Predators cleared the puck out of the zone and right into the Capitals' bench. It went straight for Dmitry Orlov and Kuemper, who attempted to grab it and ended up falling off the bench and onto his back.
