Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin (goal), center Evgeny Kuznetsov (assist), and defenseman Dmitry Orlov (goal) each posted a point in Russia’s 7-4 victory over Sweden at the 2019 IIHF World Championships on Tuesday. The victory included six unanswered goals in the second-period by Russia.

Kuznetsov earned a secondary assist on Florida Panthers forward Evgeni Dadonov’s goal that gave Russia their first lead of the night in the second period.

Ovechkin roared into the offensive zone before cutting through the middle of the ice and putting a laser past Swedish and New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist to make it 3-1.

After getting a pass from forward Alexander Barabanov, Orlov toe-dragged to the left circle and sniped a shot upstairs on Lundqvist to give Russia a 7-2 lead with 7:03 left in the contest.
