Evgeny Kuznetsov Has Officially Reached Wizard Status

For those of you that were wondering why Washington's Evgeny Kuznetsov keeps getting mention as one of the up and coming NHL playmakers--you needn't wonder anymore. Have a look at this fake wraparound stuff shot--and no, it's not a video game you're watching, that's real hockey--and there is your proof. Evgeny Kuznetsov (9-19-28, plus-15) is the real deal.

This goal is so crafty, so well-executed, so sublime. Kuznetsov makes Ben Bishop look like a bantam goalie (no offense, Ben, you're very good) as he neatly tucks the puck in the space between the post and Bishop's left skate to complete the transaction. It was cold. It was hard. It was truth.
