It'd be great for the NHL to have Kovalev back in the burgh. He's one of those guys who is a fan favorite no matter where he is playing. He just has to be playing GOOD. It seems the only place he can do that is here.
He was really flying on the ice.
After his first goal, people at the Bell started chanting his name and you could see it made him work even harder and skate even faster. Then he scored his second goal of the game on a great wrist shot. It was all about getting his confidence back IMO. I know it's a cliche but it's true.
and after the two goals, you see him wanting the puck and doing some nice plays.
He made a saucer pass to Zednik who couldn't handle the puck..it could of been another goal for the habs and another point for Kovalev...Let's hope he also starts turning it up in the PowerPlay so we can win lots of games.
