Evgeny Kuznetsov had a three-point night, which gave him a share of the team lead of points with 41. Kuzy’s empty-net goal and his apple to Tom Wilson were especially magical, but so was Kuzy’s second intermission interview with Sportsnet’s Dan Murphy.
Let’s see, Kuzy says the Caps got “a little bit more lucky” to get their lead, said some clichés, and OH MY GOD REWIND THAT. DID HE JUST SAY WHAT I THINK HE SAID?
Dan Murphy: Enjoyed your article in the Players’ Tribune. Do you think you’re going to be a writer or author after your hockey career is over? Evgeny Kuznetsov: I don’t know. Maybe I wanna sit somewhere in Switzerland, smoke nice cigars, and drink the whisky.
It’s, as Sportsnet’s George Stroumboulopoulos said afterwards, a sterotype come to life!
