Last night during the third period of Caps-Wild, Evgeny Kuznetsov, the Capitals leading scorer, was struck in the head by Mikael Granlund during a face off. Kuznetsov left the game woozy and the Caps later announced he’d be reevaluated Friday. We were all worried.
Friday afternoon, the Capitals released an update, saying Kuznetsov took and passed concussion tests and is expected to play Saturday against the Stars.
