Kuzy The Goalie is back, you guys.
During Thursday’s practice, the Russian forward shed his responsibilities at center to jump in goal without actual goalie gear. What could go wrong?
Evgeny Kuznetsov spoke about hockey, his family, and giving up video games in a new interview with the Capitals sponsored by Oscar Mayer.
Kuzy, who’s “so excited” to be playing hockey again, has apparently retired from playing video games – though I am personally very skeptical.
John Carlson was recently a guest on Scott Van Pelt’s podcast and he told one heck of a story about Alex Ovechkin.
During a past road trip, Carlson brought the team over to one of his relative’s houses for a team dinner. Ovechkin and his, uh, juvenile palate appears to have offended Carlson’s aunt.
Four Washington Capitals players returned to the ice for a small group workout on Thursday. It’s the first time the Caps have skated at MedStar Capitals Iceplex since March.
The Capitals posted a short and heavily-edited video on their social media platforms Thursday afternoon. To keep players safe and minimize possible exposure to the coronavirus, media are not allowed into the facility to cover practice or interview players, per the NHL’s Phase 2 protocol.
The Washington Capitals held their first day of small group workouts on Thursday at MedStar Capitals Iceplex.
Only four Capitals players participated according to the Washington Post’s Samantha Pell: Braden Holtby, John Carlson, Evgeny Kuznetsov, and Lars Eller.
It was the first time Capitals players hit the ice at the team’s practice facility since March.
On May 7, 2018, Evgeny Kuznetsov scored one of the biggest goals in DC Sports’ history when he eliminated the Pittsburgh Penguins in overtime of Game Six, sending the Caps to the Eastern Conference finals for the first time in 20 years.
The Capitals, went on to win their first Stanley Cup in franchise history a month later. But the second-round win against the Penguins remains one of the biggest highlights of the run.
“Game over. Series over. Curse over,” RMNB’s Peter Hassett wrote in his recap of the game.
Evgeny Kuznetsov will be the Washington Capitals’ representative in an NHL20 tournament hosted by the National Hockey League. Entitled the NHL Player Gaming Challenge, Kuznetsov is one of 49 different players participating including former Capitals Filip Forsberg and Madison Bowey representing Nashville and Detroit respectively. The NFL’s Luke Wilson will represent the NHL’s new Seattle franchise.
NBC Sports will air the first series of games, including Calgary vs. Ottawa and Columbus vs. Winnipeg, beginning at 5 PM on NBCSN as part of its Hockey Happy Hour programming. Los Angeles Kings TV play-by-play announcer Alex Faust will host the series of weekly matchups, which will be released on Thursdays and Saturdays.
Washington Capitals teammates Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov worked out together with Ovechkin’s personal trainer Pavel Burlachenko on Monday. All three were at Ovechkins Northern Virginia home. The two Russians are training together despite “stay at home” orders issued by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam.
The video was posted by Ovechkin’s wife Nastya from the window of their home. Kuznetsov can be seen giving Pavel a pound after performing some ab exercises.
Evgeny Kuznetsov hasn’t tallied a point in the last three games, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t bring his personality to Buffalo.
During the morning skate, the Capitals captured Kuzy, uh, doing his thing as he did a drill.
Alex Ovechkin is becoming a father of two boys. Ovechkin’s wife, Nastya Ovechkina, announced the gender of her baby in an Instagram post celebrating her recent baby shower. Sergei is going to become an older brother.
The party was organized by Varvara Orlova, Dmitry Orlov’s wife.
