There’s been some hand-wringing about Evgeny Kuznetsov‘s production this season compared to the last.
For all the very reasonable assertions that Kuznetsov is just fine – see Andrew Berkshire’s piece at Sportsnet – sometimes people need a more visual example that the Washington Capitals star is A-OK.
The Russian forward provided a strong example during the Capitals’ 4-1 win against the Montreal Canadiens on Monday. Watch as he dazzles on his way to his fifth of 2016-17 in the video above. Just wow.
