Two years ago today, Evgeny Kuznetsov ‘exorcised’ the Capitals’ demons and eliminated the Pittsburgh Penguins
On May 7, 2018, Evgeny Kuznetsov scored one of the biggest goals in DC Sports’ history when he eliminated the Pittsburgh Penguins in overtime of Game Six, sending the Caps to the Eastern Conference finals for the first time in 20 years.
The Capitals, went on to win their first Stanley Cup in franchise history a month later. But the second-round win against the Penguins remains one of the biggest highlights of the run.
“Game over. Series over. Curse over,” RMNB’s Peter Hassett wrote in his recap of the game.
