Monday, Evgeny Kuznetsov scored his first goal in the World Cup of Hockey. Kuzy took the puck end-to-end before depositing the puck past Matt Murray on his forehand.
The NHL’s Twitter account was very impressed.

Kuznetsov was asked about his goal celebration: "If you play FIFA, you know."

The FIFA celebration is actually called the “bird walk.” Here’s what it looks like in the video game.
That’s sad because I thought Kuzy was trying to tell us through his celebration that he was a closet Nelly Furtado fan.
What a goal and what an even better celly.
