Oh wow!! Typical pro-Koivu biaised post. It's funny how history is viewed differently from one person to another. The history will tell that when Habs won over Bruins two springs ago it was mainly because of the incredible saves of Théodore, not that Koivu outplayed Thornton. Dafoe was weak, Thornton and Guerin were dominating in good scoring chances but Theo stopped everything. Koivu did have some nice games and Dafoe sucked. Against Carolina, Theo had his slump and Koivu did nothing in offence to beat Carolina. This year most of the wins are related to Theo, not Koivu. We can point that Ryder, Souray, Ribeiro, Bégin, Dagenais and Koivu helped in the scoring sheet. Koivu alone is not that much a factor, we have to give credit to the other players mentioned.

Correct me with stats but it's not often that Habs outplay Philly like last thuesday. Don't forget they were without Ragnarson and Desjardins. And Dany Markov was his 1rst game with Philly. Anyway it didn't looked like the Flyers I know. It was just one bad night for them.
