How Kaprizov made his debut in the NHL: scores a little, makes a lot of mistakes, he is beaten in almost every match
With the arrival of Kirill Kaprizov, “Minnesota” did not become more pleasant to look at, but now this is our team. So you have to endure these not the most fun matches in the early morning. And Kirill received powerful blows from his opponents.
The arrival of the Messiah Kirill changed little in terms of the game, and it was obvious: firstly, he needs to get used to new hockey, to new partners, and secondly, he did not play for a long time due to the pandemic. True, all this together did not prevent him from scoring as many as three points in the first match and throwing a beautiful puck in overtime. But it affected the long distance.
But he gave a perfect debut. Every young hockey player probably falls asleep with the thought of how he brings victory to his team in an extra 5 minutes in the first game. Cyril succeeded.
He made people talk about himself even more than before. Now for everyone, this Russian is a person who can decide the outcome of the match, make a goal out of nothing, and so on. What we have already seen for several years during his performance at CSKA. However, there he was free from everything that needs to be done in his half of the site. The army team had a chic staffed roster, where each had its own role. This is not quite the case in the new team.
