Evgeny Kuznetsov brought a Kings player into the Capitals’ goal hug after John Carlson scored
When he’s not swinging his stick at players’ bodies like they’re a baseball, Evgeny Kuznetsov is one of the most joyful players in the NHL.
He brings a creativity to the game like an art school major and he’s never shy to let his boy-like exuberance come out during his goal celebrations.
Saturday against the Kings, Kuznetsov was so happy about John Carlson’s third-period game-tying goal that he didn’t want to share that moment just with his teammates. So he put his arm around Kings defenseman Brandt Clarke and brought him into the Capitals’ goal hug, too.
