Ahead of Game Six in Pittsburgh, Evgeny Kuznetsov had something profound to say, which I’m now going to share with you.
Kuznetsov on Game 5: '75% of people said we were going to lose that game, right? We have lots of balls in this locker room.' #CapitalsTalk

This, ladies and gentlemen, is a double entendre. This phrase is literally true (there are 20 pairs of balls in the Caps locker room; 24 if you count the coaching staff, which is a lot). The phrase is also true from a figurative, big cajones point of view (as the Capitals showed their courage on Saturday, winning 3-1 in an elimination game).
I would say this is Kuzy’s quote of the postseason, but it’s hard to top this.
Kuznetsov to @VogsCaps, on what he learned last postseason: "When we win, I feel like, I don't know, I’m like Jesus with everyone."
