Kuznetsov submits early nomination for ‘goal of the year’ (Video)

After a difficult start to the season, Evgeny Kuzentsov is finally back to the form we saw him in last year when he ended up tenth in NHL scoring.

Not only is he putting up points again, he’s doing it in style.

Case and point: Monday evening’s goal against Carey Price and the Montreal Canadiens to give the Washington Capitals the 2-1 lead.

Alexander Radulov is attempting to get control of the puck when Kuznetsov swipes it from him. The Caps forward dangles around Jeff Petry and beats Carey Price.


The goal stood as the game winner with the Caps eventually winning the game, 4-1.
