Andrei Vasilevskiy is good at preventing goals, but sometimes he needs a little help from his friends.
The Tampa Bay Lightning goalie started a mad scramble in the crease after he lost sight of the puck after stopping a shot from Washington Capitals forward Jakub Vrana. But teammate Brayden Point was there to push it away and prevent a goal during Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final on Monday.

Trailing 1-0 late in the second period, Vasilevskiy stopped Vrana's one-timer, but the puck sat in the crease behind him after he lost track of the rebound.
However, Point, a second-year center, outfought Capitals forward T.J. Oshie to get to the puck first and clear it to the corner before the cavalcade could descend.
Despite Point's heroics, Washington won 3-0 to force Game 7 on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, SN1, TVAS).
