MONTREAL -- It turns out the secret to Alexander Radulov's hockey vision is simply keeping it unobstructed.
As cool as the 30-year-old winger looked when he popped his top for a better look down the ice before setting up Nathan Beaulieu with Tuesday night's second goal, the move was really just the result of a wardrobe malfunction.
"It was just kind of hot out there, and the visor kept [getting foggy]," admitted Radulov postgame with a laugh. "I couldn't see, so I had to clear it."
This isn't the first time a Russian Hab's lid has added some extra style points to a goal. With his helmet already half-off during preseason play, how long before Radulov goes full Kovalev for a buckets-off lamp lighter?
