Washington Capitals center Evgeny Kuznetsov is one of the highest paid centers in the game and this season he’s been showing why he’s worth it nearly every night.
To begin the season, Kuznetsov set a franchise record when he became the first Capital to ever record 10 assists in the team’s first five games. Friday night in Detroit, Kuznetsov recorded a secondary assist on TJ Oshie’s last minute game-tying goal, after a brilliant passing play along with Andre Burakovsky.
There are two other Kuzy plays that I’d like to highlight. They didn’t result in goals, but were dangerous scoring chances.
