#3 Snipe like goal against the Maple Leafs in Oct. 2018

Fresh off winning the Stanley Cup, more on that later, Kuznetsov dazzled us with this. What makes the Kuznetsov shot one of the most lethal in the NHL is the way he cradles the puck and unleashes a shot from a sharp angle.

This one was straight down the line and we still can't figure out the stick work he's like a magician.

The date was Oct. 13, 2018, a Saturday night in crisp autumn weather. Chandler Stephenson got things started and Kuznetsov had the primary assist there. After Kasperi Kapanen tied it, Kuznetsov scored that sharp angle shot on the power play. That gave the Caps the lead before the Maple Leafs did Maple Leaf things and take over.

Par Lindholm tied it back up. In the third they took the lead with a PPG from Josh Leivo before Auston Matthews put it away.
