The play was simple. Kuznetsov gathered a pass along the boards and peeled from the corner, shedding Frans Nielsen, who might as well have been stuck in quicksand. Kuznetsov took the puck across the slot before patiently waiting for Jaroslav Halak to commit. When Halak fell over, Kuznetsov threw the puck from no angle past Halak’s out-stretched hands to the top corner of the net.
Not sure what this celebration was about. Maybe a little bit of Russian Katniss Everdeen shooting an arrow into the crowd.
Kuzy, you’re our game seven hero and that’s why we waited three extra years for you.
