Definitely a good game, he stepped up and got the message of his benching. He needs to play like the maniac he is to stay in. He did that and more.

The problem for top six minutes is who to drop: Ryder played well, Higgins played well, Latendresse played well and Kovalev played well last time he played. You cannot move Higgins to center and Pleks down either.

He's definitely earned his NHL spot, but he's going to have to unhorse one of those four men to stay up there.

Honestly, I like what Carboneau is doing right now... four number one lines is what it looked like, he spread everyone out and it worked two games straight. Like Kovalev got that much hyped ride on the fourth line Saturday and played 20+ minutes. With the parity on the roster, this isn't the worst approach.
