Washington's rising young star showed why he holds such distinction with a beauty play to set up Andre Burakovsky for a goal against the Calgary Flames. The Capitals went on to win 6-2.
Cover your children's eyes…COVER THEM! Because what you are about to witness is, frankly, obscene.
Washington's Evgeny Kuznetsov pulled off a devastating no-look pass last night, feeding Andre Burakovsky for a goal in the Caps' 6-2 demolition of the struggling Calgary Flames.
Poor Dennis Wideman. Not only does Kuznetsov strip him of the puck, but the Flames D-man can't catch up to the play and ends up staring into the abyss as Burakovsky finishes off the highlight-reel dish.
With the win, Washington ran its record to 4-1-0, while the Flames continue to languish at the bottom of the Pacific Division, winning just one of their first six outings.
