On Eddie O...

I'll always remember him as the "third russian" playing on a line with Sergei Nemchinov and Alexei Kovalev. Boy oh boy. I'll never forget that one game against (then tragically comical) Senators where that line scored some 3 goals and they were beauties. On one of the goals, all three contributed as they criss-crossed the neutral zone with a few nice drop passes and behind-the-back passes. On the most memorable goal, it was Kovy who deked around a d-man (who stumbled to his knees because he didn't know which way AK was going), before pulling a stunning deke-forehand-backhand-forehand-move on the goalie (Billington I believe) who was already fooled and sliding one way when Kovy pulled it back to his forehand and roofed it to the empty net while falling down.

Ahh...those were the times
