Bird No Longer the Word for Kuznetsov

Evgeny Kuznetsov riled up the haters with his bird celebration after scoring in Game 1 of the Washington Capitals best-of-7 series with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Now he's shut it down, telling reporters (see video above, at the end) it was "bad karma" after Washington's Game 5 victory at Verizon Center.

God forbid anybody should have too much fun after scoring a goal in the NHL playoffs.

That said, the celly wasn't one of our faves.

Kuznetsov, who has five goals in the playoffs including goals in three straight games against the Penguins, will hope to lead his team's offense again on Monday night when the Capitals travel to Pittsburgh for Game 6.
