Evgeny Kuznetsov was ice cold during last season’s playoffs, but he’s starting to warm up against the Leafs.
In the second period, Kuzy caught a nice rebound off Marcus Johansson’s shot to sink a goal from no angle.

Here’s Marcus rushing up the ice, getting the shot loose. Andersen has it covered, but Kuznetsov sailed to the perfect spot. A shot with alacrity extends the Caps lead.
After scoring, Kuznetsov did the bird walk celly he first debuted during the World Cup of Hockey in September.
