Evgeny Kuznetsov is just trying to fulfill his media obligations and conduct this interview, man. He didn’t ask for Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom to swoop in and hijack the thing.

Kuznetsov’s flying bird dance lends itself to all kinds of fantastic moments. We’ve seen moving fan signs, bobbleheads (and even better bobblehead promotion videos) and so much more involving Flying Kuznetsov.

Even his teammates are no stranger to the dance. That’s how good it is.
