HE proved on many occasions this year that he can go in front of the net, he is a better passer than higgins and his shot again.
Carbo's 5-on-3 selections this year have been head scratchers at best.
Our 2nd and 3rd best goal scorers have both spent minimal time on the 2 man advantage. Infact, the only 5-on-3 I can remember off the top of my head that A Kostitsyn and Plekanec played on for more than 10 seconds was that one in Ottawa when we were getting blown out. (We scored btw, Andrei from Sergei and Price). Get you best players out on the key powerplays and 2 man advantages for godsakes. I have no problem with Koivu being on last night, the guy is on a mission right now. But Higgins over Kostitsyn? Why in the world? Why would you not want a guy with that much skill and goal scoring ability out there on a 2 man PP?
Somebody please explain it to me.
