Kuznetsov For Conn Smythe
Alright just give Evgeny Kuznetsov the Conn Smythe right now. He has been absolutely electric and is lightning the lamp on a nightly basis. He’s been playing on the top line and has registered the most points in the playoffs with 31. He’s kept it going in the Finals too he’s got 7 points so far and he really only played in 3 games. Kuzy has been the X-Factor for the Caps this year and he’s shown up in their biggest games.
Kuznetsov is posting some unheard of numbers, very few players have been able to post 30+ points in a single playoff. Since 2000 only two players have put up more than 30 points in a playoff run, those guys are Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby. That’s some pretty good company to be in. Kuznetsov shows up in the playoffs in his 62 playoff games he has 50 points! Also helps that he has a + 10 rating in the playoffs too. He’s been a reliable producer and he’s got great chemistry with Ovi and he’s gonna be a big piece of Washington’s future. Oh and he helped Ovi to post his highest point total since 2009, I guess you could say Kuzy is a pretty good playmaker. This offense has been run through Kuznetsov and as long as he’s on his game there is no chance the Capitals lose to the Knights.
He won’t be the only reason the Caps win the Cup but he’s certainly been their biggest factor. Look for Kuzy to help secure the Cup for the Caps Thursday night at 8:00 on NBC.
Also, how can you hate on this celly?
