Evgeny Kuznetsov now has nine points in his last four games after another sensational game against the Arizona Coyotes.
Kuznetsov scored twice on Coyotes goaltender Antti Raanta and helped lead a Capitals comeback after Washington fell behind 3-0.
“It’s perfect time to improve,” Kuznetsov said. “You cannot be perfect every time so sometimes we have to go through these types of games, but I like the way we respond in the third.”
In the final minutes, the Russian center was on the doorstep to score a game-tying, hat-trick goal but instead TJ Oshie got his stick on the puck first.
Bummer. Hats flew anyway.
