Do you seriously think Kovalev would have made a difference on the game last night even if playing on that first PP wave? Maybe the guy cares about his stats but personally I dont, I wanna see him play like he played last season, using his linemates and working hard again, I dont want the Kovy of 2 years ago who thought everything was due to him... It all starts even strength, I know Kovy gets most of his pts on the PP but he has to find a way to contribute 5 on 5, it starts by working harder, not cheating offensively, use his linemates and move his feet when he doesnt have the puck... I understand people not being satisfacted with his play, I dont think he is the only one to blame but he is certainly one of the vets who has to show the kids the right way, at the moment he has a bad influence making himself bigger than the team and I dont like it.. I rather have 3 young guys on the same line clicking and working hard ever shifts than the Kovy of 2 years ago on my team..
If we score on a PP and make it 2-1 instead of not scoring and then the Bruins make it 3-0 yes i think it could have made a difference.

At 2-1 it would've been a whole new hockey game.
