Evgeny Kuznetsov turned the Capitals net around at the end of warmups to mess up Evgeni Malkin’s routine
Despite being on rival teams in the NHL, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Evgeni Malkin are good friends. But that doesn’t mean they don’t get cranky or mess with each other on the ice.
For instance, during a regular-season matchup in 2018, Malkin got ejected after screaming at Kuznetsov because, as Malkin explained later, “Kuzy spoke Russian” to him.
On Tuesday, Kuznetsov went to another level to annoy the second overall pick of the 2004 NHL Draft.
