Alex Ovechkin is confident that his friend and fellow Russian Evgeny Kuznetsov will adapt well to the NHL.
A game between the Caps and Penguins is rarely overshadowed given the rivalry’s history and the team’s star-studded lineups. On Monday night, however, one young Russian stole the spotlight.
How comfortable is Evgeny Kuznetsov feeling as a house guest of Alex Ovechkin?
Judging from the Capitals’ morning skate on Monday, the Evgeny Kuznetsov era will begin on a fourth line with Jay Beagle and Tom Wilson tonight against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
