I am pretty sure it can only be a follow through on a shot on net, which it clearly wasn't.

I was under the same impression. It wouldn't make sence if it was a follow through on any given occasion because most highsticks are indead follow throughs.

I think you are wrong.
60.1 High-sticking - A “high stick” is one which is carried above the height of the opponent’s shoulders. Players and goalkeepers must be in control and responsible for their stick. However, a player or goalkeeper is permitted accidental contact on an opponent if the act is committed as a normal windup or follow through of a shooting motion. A wild swing at a bouncing puck would not be considered a normal windup or follow through and any contact to an opponent above the height of the shoulders shall be penalized accordingly.

Its shooting motion, period. Streit was shooting the puck around the boards to clear the zone and Kovy took the follow through, no penalty.

Its not just a follow through on any occasion, its a wind up or follow through when you go to shoot the puck. Most high sticks do not happen like that at all, in fact i rarely see it happen.

Fans often accepted that as an encouraging sign that the team was "in the game" or were perhaps robbed by good goaltending. Now the team shows that they truly can put together an attack and the other team needs to work to the 60th minute when the game's on the line.

Funny that this type of game came against the Islanders. Back in the '80's dynasty the Isles made a habit of winning games that to the eye of the fan they had no business being in. Yet they found a way to win. I think it's the sign of a champion when you can ride out the other team's flow to put yourself in a position to win, and when you can snatch the proverbial victory from defeat you're ready to go to the next level of contention.

Like I said I like what I see this year.

Great win, boys! You remind me of unbeatable soccer team Brasil when their motto was: "You can score as many as you can. We can score as many as we want".

The thing is that rule isn't worded very clearly. Because someone going to ring it around the boards is not a shot. A shot is an attempt on the net.

Islanders, next time play 60 minutes of hockey. Kovy, Pleks, Akost - what lit a fire under their a__ in the third period? It's like everybody forgot about Andy Sutton and decided to cut to the net. Bravo!!!
