Evgeny Kuznetsov had five assists already this series, but he waited until the back half of Game Seven to score a goal of his own.
But, boy howdy, was it a beaut. The bird is back.
Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal was one of many local sports stars who attended the Capitals’ Game One win against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Beal, who has become close friends with Evgeny Kuznetsov, celebrated after the game in the best way.
He did The Bird.
Tuesday night is Evgeny Kuznetsov‘s “Bird Celly” bobblehead night, but we can think of one person who won’t be happy about it.
Don Cherry has been an outspoken critic of “The Birdman” since Kuznetsov started to do his Bird Walk goal celebration. He doubled down on that recently, calling Kuznetsov a “jerk” in the latest episode of Coach’s Corner, prompting a new t-shirt.
Kuznetsov was asked about Cherry’s comments on Tuesday ahead of the Capitals’ game against the bunch of jerks also known as the Carolina Hurricanes.
The image of the Washington Capitals lifting the Stanley Cup on the ice following their historic Game Five win was an enduringly powerful and emotional moment for fans everywhere.
Now, thanks to a new NHL feature on Evgeny Kuznetsov, we have been treated to perhaps the cutest Cup-lift photograph to ever exist.
Meet Ecenia Kuznetsova, Stanley Cup champion.
The Washington Capitals’ social media team asked several players to do Evgeny Kuznetsov’s bird celebration to sell tickets for Tuesday’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes. The team is giving away Evgeny Kuznetsov bobbleheads to all fans in attendance.
I am okay with this because the resulting content is great and it resulted in these GIFs.
Ecenia Kuznetsova will sleep happy tonight.
Her dad, Evgeny Kuznetsov, scored his 20th goal of the season and the 100th of his career Wednesday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The last-minute game-tying goal sent one of the best hockey games of the Capitals’ season to overtime.
Kuzy brought back his signature bird celly to celebrate.
“Maybe my best game ever,” Kuznetsov said.
When the Capitals announced their 2018-19 promo schedule, one of the highlights was a bobblehead of Capitals forward Evgeny Kuznetsov. On Wednesday afternoon we got a first look at the bobblehead, which every fan in attendance at the Capitals home game on March 26 will receive.
The bobblehead features Kuzy grinning while doing his trademark bird walk celebration.
Evgeny Kuznetsov giggled as he stretched, noticing the sign along the glass during warmups in Toronto last Thursday. The poster read Give ‘Em The Bird and featured Kuznetsov’s signature bird walk celebration.
Except, this was a next level sign. The arms on the sign actually flapped.
Not only did the sign catch Kuzy’s attention, but the rest of the hockey world too, as the posters went viral late last week. The sign and the Alex Ovechkin Hot Stick sequel were covered by NHL, NBC Sports, and TSN.
The maker of the signs, Julia Pettella, a Brock University goaltender, said she can’t believe the reaction her signs have gotten over the past couple of days.
In a Russian-language interview with Sport-Express’s Igor Rabiner, Kuznetsov revealed that his daughter has started getting mad when Dad doesn’t do the bird walk celly.
The Columbus Blue Jackets shut out the Washington Capitals 3-0 at Nationwide Center Tuesday night. A year after watching their favorite team lose to the Capitals in the first round, Blue Jackets fans were very excited about Columbus beating their divisional rival in an important regular season game.
So excited, in fact, that they started flapping their wings.
