Regardless of which team you support in this series, you've got to admire the guts of Carolina Hurricanes forward Evgeny Kuznetsov.

Facing the New York Rangers in Game 4 of their second-round Stanley Cup playoff series on Saturday, the Hurricanes were fighting to stay alive after squandering a 3-0 series lead.

With the game tied 3-3 in the third period, the pressure was on. But Kuznetsov didn't seem fazed. In a bold move, he attempted The Michigan from behind the Rangers' net, a rare sight in an elimination game.




Though he didn't succeed, credit goes to Adam Fox for a stellar defensive play, denying Kuznetsov's daring attempt.

The Carolina Hurricanes did end up pulling of the victory with a final score of 4-3, with this the win they force game 5 and put an end to the NY Rangers seven game winning streak during the playoffs.
