VIDEO: Antoine Vermette Steals Puck, Sets Up Mikkel Boedker Goal; 2-2 Score

What a play by Antoine Vermette. It was pretty gutsy to jump into a play where a near-collision with goalie Jonathan Quick was a real possibility, but Vermette got past the goalie, pressured the puck away from defenseman Drew Doughty and turned it into a goalie to tie this Game 1 at 2-2.

Had Vermette taken the more conservative route to the outside of Quick, he likely wouldn't have reached Doughty in time to get the puck. Instead, he was able to deliver the hit and tap the puck over to Shane Doan, who found Mikkel Boedker all alone in front of the net for the easy goal. Quick never could really get back into position after leaving his crease, either.
