On January 15th, Capitals forward Evgeny Kuznetsov joined John “JohnWayne” Casagranda of Caps Gaming to play some NHL 20 and FIFA. There was some good-natured chirping throughout the Twitch stream, as Kuznetsov and Casagranda went head-to-head, with a few interesting insights into the Capitals’ gaming habits, including Kuzy and rookie goaltender Ilya Samsonov’s daily battles on both NHL 20 and FIFA.
Samsonov even mentioned the two played against each other regularly to The Washington Post’s Samantha Pell in November, saying, “He’s constantly losing. He doesn’t have enough experience. He’s playing poorly, to be honest.”
But when Scott Allen caught up with Kuznetsov after the Twitch stream, he denied that it was quite that bad. “We pretty much play every day,” Kuznetsov told Allen. “Last three days, he won one game. We play 10 times. So, suck on that, Sammy.”
However, it might not be as simple a victory as Kuznetsov is making it out to be.
