I bet you never thought you would read an article that had both Dylan Larkin and Tayshaun Prince in the title but here you are, and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.
The Detroit Red Wings may have lost in overtime to the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night but their captain, Dylan Larkin, made a play that gave us all flashbacks to 2004 when Tayshaun Prince made one of the greatest defensive plays in NBA history.
What did Dylan Larkin do to save the game?
With the Red Wings trailing the Los Angeles Kings 4-3 late in the third period, Dylan Larkin channeled his inner Tayshaun Prince before making one of the greatest defensive plays you will ever see to keep his team alive.
Watch as Larkin absolutely sells out to prevent an empty net goal by Viktor Arvidsson.
What happened next for the Red Wings?
Following Larkin's amazing play, Red Wings C Oskar Sundqvist scored to tie the score up at 4-4, sending the game to overtime.
Unfortunately, the Kings got the last laugh as Phillip Danault scored a goal just 1:12 into overtime to give his team a 5-4 win at Little Caesars Arena.
With the loss, the Red Wings are now 2-0-1 (5 points), which is currently good enough for second place in the Atlantic Division.
The Red Wings may not have gotten the home win they wanted, but Larkin's clutch play ended up allowing them to earn a point.
