MONTREAL — Max Domi broke a tie with 21 seconds left and Jesperi Kotkaniemi scored his first two NHL goals in the Montreal Canadiens’ 6-4 victory over the Washington Capitals 6-4 on Thursday night.
After Domi’s goal, Joel Armia added an empty-netter two seconds later for the fastest two goals in NHL history.
Kotkaniemi tied it with his second of the night with 3:04 remaining. Surrounded by three Capitals players, the Finn got his stick on the puck and his shot trickled past Holtby. At 18 years and 118 days old, Kotkaniemi became the second-youngest goal scorer in franchise history.
Domi gave the Canadiens the lead when Holtby fanned on his wrist shot.
Brendan Gallagher also had two goals, and Carey Price stopped 27 shots for his fifth victory of the season to help the Canadiens improve to 7-3-2.
Alex Ovechkin and Lars Eller each scored twice for the Capitals, and Braden Holtby made 38 saves.
