— Washington Capitals (@washcaps) April 11, 2015
Galiev’s goal came with 29 seconds left in the Washington Capitals’ 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers today.
The former Sea Dogs forward, who made his NHL debut with the Caps earlier this week, finished the game with a goal, one shot and two hits in 8:50 of ice time.
The Capitals will be appearing in the Stanley Cup playoffs but it’s unclear if Galiev will remain on the team’s roster.
The AHL’s Hershey Bears, where Galiev had been playing until his call up, have three games remaining in their regular season schedule. They are one of the top teams in the AHL this season and will be appearing in the Calder Cup playoffs.
