and who really died against Montreal? B. Clarke. Bobby against Montreal was as
slow as molasses ( not that he was ever a fast skater, strong skater, but definitely
not fast, he had not legs left) That was the year Leach carried the team, and as I recollect won the Conn Smithe Trophy. Kovalchuk playing 35 minutes is like 10 minutes for Giroux. Kovalchuk just hangs out at center ice all game long. Even I could handle those 35 minutes! ;-))) Last night Peter L. played the 4th liners more, of course, it was 9-0 when he did it. And again remind me why we have Shelley? Who fought last night,
the two mighty midgets, Harry Z and Rinaldo plus that sweet fight by Simmonds? Please
remind me again why we have Walker?
Do not forget that the NHL stops ALL drug testing when the playoffs start.....Players seem to find the " jump in a bottle " come playoff time.Pro sports is all about 2 types of chemistry these days.
