Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Gets on scoresheet for first time this year

Kuznetsov notched an assist on T.J. Oshie's third-period insurance goal for his first point of the season Tuesday against Colorado.

His unit with Oshie and Alex Ovechkin was off to a slow start, but you can't keep the Capitals' ultra-talented top line down for long. Kuznetsov's coming off a big-time breakout last year, and fantasy owners should be willing to forgive him for fading down the stretch, considering that he skated the most minutes of his career by far. With Ovechkin around to receive his slick passes and deposit them behind opposing goalies, Kuznetsov shouldn't have much trouble surpassing 70 points again this year.
