Kovalev shoots, Rangers win...

I know it may not have been the direct result of Kovalev shooting, but wow, that was refreshing to see. In the first four games, I see him twirl around with the puck and he's magical with it but he didn't do much of anything except make attempts to set up teammates. Tonight, he shot the puck when he was in doubt, and it looked much better.

He's amazing with the puck, he still amazes me. The little passes that no one notices, very reminiscent of Adam Oates' passing and thinking (they both did it at any given time, no matter how their feet were moving, they were able to forehand or backhand a pass to a teammate on the tape in mid-stride).

His "shoot the puck" mentality certainly didn't hurt his playmaking.
