Getting out for 10 minutes or less is tough on any player to get into the flow of the game.
I don't think this had as much to do with an injury as it did with the coach showing confidence in him, and thus his recent success
To be fair, this was a "show me" type of move by Trotz IMO. Kostitsyn has shown flashes of brilliance in games and in practice, but he has also shown wild inconsistency as well.
I think SK was beginning to slide onto everyone's "is this really gonna work out" radar when Trotz made the move and luckily for everyone...SK has responded.
BTW, who was it that immediately recommended a Erat - Kostitsyn combo this summer when he was acquired? Granted I had Legwand in the middle, but nonetheless...I'm glad to see it working so far!
