New goals songs: Ilya Kolachuk picks Basta’s ‘Moya Igra’ while Brenden Dillon goes with ‘Go Bang’ by Pnau
Ilya Kovalchuk will become the first Washington Capitals player ever to have a Russian-language goal song, according to the team’s social media accounts.
Alex Ovechkin (‘Shake, Rattle, & Roll’), Evgeny Kuznetsov (‘Get Low’), and Dmitry Orlov (‘Oh Yeah’) previously chose English-language songs. We’re allowed to pick “French, Spanish, English, but not the Russian for some reason, it is not allowed,” Kuznetsov said to the Washington Post’s Samantha Pell in November. The arrival of Kovalchuk apparently has lifted that ban.
The Capitals released an updated list of players’ goal songs that included the picks of the team’s new additions at the trade deadline: Kovalchuk and Brenden Dillon.
