Montreal Canadiens set NHL record with 2 goals in 2 seconds vs. Washington Capitals

The Montreal Canadiens rallied past the Washington Capitals on Thursday night with record-setting flair.

They scored the final two goals of their 6-4 victory two seconds apart, establishing an NHL record for fastest two goals by one team.

That broke the mark of three seconds set by the St. Louis Eagles on March 12, 1935, and tied by the Minnesota Wild on Jan. 21, 2004.

Goals have been scored two seconds apart in two other games – St. Louis Blues vs. Boston on Dec. 19, 1987, and Minnesota vs. Columbus on Jan. 5, 2016 – but that was done by both teams. This was the first time by one team.
