During the second period of the Washington Capitals 4-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks, Evgeny Kuznetsov got the first three points of his NHL career. All three were assists. The first goal was scored by, who else, Evgeny Kuznetsov’s roommate Alex Ovechkin! It was Ovechkin’s 45th goal of the season. The second goal was scored by Tom Wilson, his third of the season. In the third period, Kuznetsov added another assist on Mike Green‘s goal. Here’s John Walton calling Ovechkin’s goal and here’s John Walton calling Wilson’s goal. Here’s Walton calling Mike Green’s goal. Further proof that John Walton is a treasure.
Here’s some gifs of Evgeny Kuznetsov’s first NHL points:
And here’s the videos! His first:
What an incredible game for Evgeny Kuznetsov. His pass to set up Wilson’s goal was one of the most beautiful passes I’ve seen in quite some time. He really played a great game tonight. It wasn’t just his offense, he did very well on defense too. He has great chemistry with Wilson and Jay Beagle. The past two games, they were starting to get something going. Tonight it boiled over. I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see more of Kuznetsov and Wilson on the same line. They complement each other very well.
