As Prince Harry honed in on the memorable moment, Hertl was ready to get to business.
"I actually had to tell him [to drop the puck] because he kept holding [it] and smiling," Hertl said after the game about the once-in-a-lifetime moment.
The royal pair appeared confused when a Canucks goal was disallowed due to goalie interference. The two were all-in for Vancouver:
