Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom‘s former KHL team, Dynamo Moscow, has beat Evgeny Kuznetsov’s Traktor Chelyabinsk 3-2 in overtime to secure a championship win in game 6 of the Gagarin Cup finals, taking the hardware home for the second straight year.
Despite a few good chances, Caps prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov, was held without a point. Kuznetsov had eleven points in 25 games during his team’s long playoff journey.
Back in Washington, Ovechkin and Backstrom shared their happiness via Twitter.

Before Dynamo’s game against Ak Bars Wednesday, there was a pre-game ceremony to honor Caps captain Alex Ovechkin. The Russian machine, who played a big part in capturing gold for Team Russia at the 2012 World Championships, was given a championship ring from one of the greatest goaltenders of all-time, Vladislav Tretiak.
