Kuznetsov knew he was being mocked but didn’t seem to mind it. He even threw in a jab at Columbus over Washington’s playoff win over the Blue Jackets en route to their first Stanley Cup championship last year.
CBJ players did Kuznetsov’s bird celly after Panarin scored the winner.
Kuznetsov: “That’s fine. It’s nice to get some people that think about me. Same as like in April last year, you know?”

When you can claim championship, you win the argument.
