With an off day on Thursday, the Caps decided to trade in their hockey sticks for golf clubs. Per usual, it was the two Russian superstars who stood out.
Check out this putt and celebration from Evgeny Kuznetsov:

Is there anything he can't do?
The best part is the celebration. Note that as soon as Kuznetsov throws the putter in the air, he immediately looks up to make sure it's not about to come back and hit him in the head.
Alex Ovechkin, meanwhile, showed why he should stick to hockey.
Ovechkin is able to hit a small rubber disk that is moving towards him at a high-rate of speed while on ice skates and he is able to do it with pin-point accuracy. Yet, he is no match for a stationary golf ball.
Luckily for him and for Caps fans, the season is only one week away which means less golf and a whole lot more hockey.
