#3 Evgeny Kuznetsov goal Game 6 to beat Pittsburgh Penguins

This one is another breakaway goal for the ages. It was in overtime in Game 6. After the Caps won an emotional Game 5 they had the chance of a lifetime to end the Penguins back to back Cup defense and spoil any chance of them having a three peat.

This goal also unlocked a door to more potential and even better greatness a month later.

Sidney Crosby turned the puck over. Alex Ovechkin got it. He found a wide open Evgeny Kuznetsov and the rest is history.

Kuzy was a beast that spring and sadly this might have been the last biggest Caps goal we see from the center who at the time of this writing made a request to be traded, per a report from Mike Vogel.

But nothing is better than beating the Penguins and Kuznetsov put himself in rare and elite company as it was only the second time ever the Caps defeated their rivals in the postseason and first time doing it with Alex Ovechkin.
