I talk about it often, but Kovalev made one of the most unreal passes I've ever seen in hockey, anywhere. AHL 1993, Baltimore, the last season the Portland Pirates were the Baltimore Skipjacks. Kovalev was sent down to Binghamton during that horrendous '93 season. The Bing team had the best record in Pro hockey, team was stacked with AHL all stars and a future HOF'er in Zubov.

I was one of a few dozen in the stands, sitting two rows away from Neil Smith and Larry Pleau. Bing goes on the PP and Kovalev gets the puck on the right side boards, before anyone can blink Kovalev freezes the whole arena with a cross ice diagonal pass right on the tape to Craig Duncanson who's sitting on the doorstep and taps in a one timer. Even Duncanson looked up in amazement as to what just happened. I looked up at Smith and Pleau and we all just shook our heads and smiled, I gave Smith the thumbs up and he nodded back. Classic moment.
