You do realize he was the reason the game was 2-2 to start with right?

Yes you should use it, and use it a lot for the love of God. Youve just gotta have way too much time on hand to post stupid comments like that.

lol, come on dude.

I'll bet you thought the Markov penalty was absolutely a clear penalty too. It may have been, but it was far less of a penalty that Kovy's.

He slashed the guy hard enough to make him miss a step.

I believe they called it a slash, which it clearly was. I don't care if the Bruin guy farted in his face while they were down, you have to keep your temper in check in those situations, especially when you're already down a man.

Do you realize hes the reason why the game was 2-0 and 3-2 right? If you wanna bring his penalty all over again it's pretty sad cuz the guy redeemed himself BIG TIME and admited that his penalty was really selfish. Mistakes happen man i'm sure we all know about that.

They both cancel each other out, I wouldn't praise him for fixing what was his fault to begin with.

The only guy on that line that seems to realize it's the playoffs right now is Kostitsyn. He's not making the fancy plays, he's getting chances and going to the net. I can live with Kovalev making fancy plays, but that penalty, while wearing the C and being shorthanded was exactly the type teams don't take if they want to make some damage in the playoffs.

This isn't the first time he plays selfish like that, I'm hoping this is the first and last time it happens this year because he might be able to redeem himself next time.

I'll give him and Plekanec a break though, they're being double teamed and hit non stop. Once Koivu gets back, they'll get better matchups assuming Koivu plays like in 04 and not 06.

Once Koivu returns the PP will be back on track!

Were it Cindy and not Kovalev the Bruins would have got the penalty for interference, you've got to know that.

I like Kovalev, but I'm not gonna jump all over his bandwagon for scoring in OT wen he played a terrible game. I want the Kovalev of 04, minus the faking a wrist injury and costing his team the game, obviously.
You missed his assist?

Kovalev appreciation thread

Let me think about this...? Ummm, OK.

Alexander Kovalev singlehandedly crafted the KPK line that carried this team through late November to mid March until the rest of the team caught fire.

The Habs face a tough contest tonight, and the long blades come out. Maybe Kovy's 2 points in a victory means nothing to some.

To myself, Alexander Kovalev remains a joy to watch each and every game.

Yeah I can't say I have too many problems with Kovalev taking that penalty and then going on to score the winner. All the best players have taken penalties at awful times, Steve Yzerman 15:00 into the 3rd in Salt Lake anyone? Then he went on to set up Iginla for the insurance goal.

So get over it, complainers.

Mistakes are allowed when you are one of the main reasons your team is teh best of the east.

I appreciate Kovalev and his 2 points in this very close game.

Kovalev is awesome, I remember when we got him just before the boston series in 2004. He is the guy in my mind that turned the tide of our franchise. Bob Gainey has done just an awesome job getting great players.

He has been a great player this year and for him to get the game winner tonight just awesome. I don't care what Don Cherry says he is a great player. I think Carbo has made him alot more tougher compared to before. He deserves all my respect and I hope they can resign him next year.

GO HABS GO going for 25 and still a live

I like Kovalev, alot, but aside from the goal today he has yet to bring anything to this series. He's looked awful out there and has no intensity or anything.

I think having the C is too much pressure for him!

I love the guy (although he should have thought twice before slashing that player... but what ever that's over now)


People don't seem to keep in mind that he 's constantly watched closely by our opponents. They always send their best line ups when he's on the ice. It's only normal to see him having a hard time. He's facing everything the opponents have. Even while the tight surveillance on him, I believe he's doing an awesome job.

Keep up the good work Kovy!

He's playing just like the regular season, but hes being watched very very very closely by the bruins. His contribution is still 1 goal 1 assist and +2

(correct me if im wrong)

Kovy should have buried a couple more than he has so far this series, he's just trying too hard. He still comes through and knows what winning's all about. The man is awesome.
Exactly, he is trying to hard, he should just let the game come to him, not force anything, and he will deliver!!!!!
