This was an incredible play from Braden Holtby.

Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby came way out of his crease to stop a Toronto Maple Leafs breakaway opportunity during Monday's Game 3.  

The chance came immediately after the Leafs killed a Capitals power play. Toronto's Mitch Marner appeared to have a clear path to the net, but Holtby charged out of his net and swept away the puck—an extraordinarily risky play, especially considering the speed at which it happened. It was pretty incredible. 

Take a look. 

The Capitals led 3-1 at the time, though the Leafs scored soon after to cut the deficit to one goal. The series was tied 1-1 entering Monday's game.
