A hero shift from Wilson.

Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson may have just had one of the best shifts of this National Hockey League Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Wilson made a hero play during Game 4 of Washington's first round series against the Maple Leafs, literally pulling the puck off the goal line, sacrificing his own body to save what looked like a sure goal for the Leafs.

Moments later Wilson found himself at the other end of the ice after going end to end, and he scored the first of his two goals in this game thus far. Wilson was rewarded with a big fist bump from goaltender Braden Holtby after that shift.
