Todd Reirden on Evgeny Kuznetsov’s between-the-legs breakaway attempt: ‘I’d prefer a different move in that situation’
With the Capitals down 3-2, Evgeny Kuznetsov tried to score on San Jose Sharks goaltender Martin Jones on a breakaway. Instead of going to one of his go-to moves, Kuznetsov got fancy and tried to shoot the puck between the legs. The Russian centerman overskated the puck and didn’t get a shot on net.
After the game, head coach Todd Reirden was asked about Kuznetsov’s decision making.
