When Braden Holtby’s shutout streak ended at a nice total of 169 minutes, the Capitals suddenly found themselves in a tie game.
“Don’t worry,” Evgeny Kuznetsov probably said, “I’ve got this.”
“But Kuzy,” Brooks Orpik probably said, “you never score anymore.”
Then Kuznetsov spit into the ice, grinned, and said, “watch this.”
So watch this.

It’s all Eugene. Solo, like Rambo in the jungle. He drives in from the blue line, undressed one, no, two Canadiens, and then plops the pluck behind Price.
Forehand, backhand, backhand, forehand, celebrate.
Craig Laughlin called it a “jockstrapper.”
With the assist, Alex Ovechkin would tally career point 998 on the goal.
The Caps got the lead back immediately, but Kuznetsov wasn’t done. He assisted Brett Connolly on a goal shortly after to give Washington a two-goal lead.
What a dirty, dirty boy.
