I won't lie, on a season-wide basis I've been somewhat disappointed with Kovalev....whether it be his drive, motivation, smarts, or something else......what he had last season is lacking this season.

But maybe that's okay -- last season he was an absolute beast but disappeared in the playoffs....PERHAPS this year he is a bit off-and-on and he'll be his usual dominant self in the post-season. That's my own personal prediction. But I would also like to express how much I think Kovalev is coming around in the past few weeks. I'm not upset with his recent play at all.

Even though many of the Devils acted like Pylons on the PK tonight, he danced a bit around them. It was fun to see and when I look back at past Habs seasons when I'm older, Kovy will always be the cream of the crop. He's who you model your skills after, he's who you wish you could rival one day
