Evgeny Kuznetsov would be hilarious in a 3-part Washington Capitals doc.
Whether it be the part showing a montage of their 2018 Stanley Cup run or even their tricky navigation into the 2019-20 season that was ultimately interrupted by a global pandemic, Kuznetsov would be there to supply the quotes we need to laugh throughout the documentary.
Of course, Kuznetsov isn’t just there to provide the funny moments. He also was one of their impact players on the way to that first ever Stanley Cup. He led the team in points with 32 to go along with 12 goals and 20 assists. He also scored the biggest goal in franchise history to help eliminate the Pittsburgh Penguins in overtime in Game 6. It was a breakaway effort to exorcise the demons.

Of course we can show this documentary with that type of angle of the aftermath of that game, the scene from the locker room, and then some quote from Kuznetsov about finally beating that opponent when it matters the most.
The documentary can continue by showing Kuznetsov’s early part of his career. He was drafted in the first round at 26th overall in 2010. We can get a behind the scenes look at his draft night from 10 years ago. Then fast forward to March 2014 when he scored his first NHL goal against the Los Angles Kings.
The doc continues with Kuznetsov’s clutch game-winning goal a year later in Game 7 of the first round against the New York Islanders before jumping back to 2018 where we put a bow on the first part of the doc with Kuznetsov’s day with the Cup.
The second part of the documentary is a look at this season which begins when Kuznetsov was suspended for three games. Rather than beating himself up about it, Kuznetsov admits that he made a mistake and is ready to better himself from it. It’s an inspiring message for other athletes or those who have slipped up in the past.
Kuznetsov scored 19 goals and added 33 assists for 52 points before the season was paused. The documentary will show Kuznetsov behind the scenes throughout the season navigating the ups and downs before the season was stopped due to the novel coronavirus. The pause will be the end of the second part.

The third part will show what Kuznetsov and his family have been up to during the quarantine as well as off ice training. When the rink opens up again we get an all access pass to the informal workouts before the documentary ends with Kuznetsov talking about his excitement of finishing out the 2019-20 season on the road. After all he likes road games better than home games.
Again this is all just our wild imagination but Kuzy would be hilarious if there was a three-part documentary about him.
