Evgeny Kuznetsov scored a goal in the second period during the Capitals Game 7 loss to Carolina Wednesday. He also added three shots-on-goal for the game. The loss ends the season for Kuznetsov and Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Kuznetsov finally broke out of his scoring slump, depositing his first, and only, goal of the playoffs after netting 12 during last season’s Cup run.

Expect about 70 points again next season with the potential for a bit more if things go right for Kuznetsov. Centering Alex Ovechkin regularly would certainly help his prospects.
