I prefer seeing Kovalev score a goal off of all kinds of crazy moves...and then the camera pans to him for the celebration and he looks bored
Yeah, he's awesome !! Do you remember his fantastic game in december against Ottawa, where he scored the winning goal with a wrister top shelf (in the shootout wasn't it) and then skated towards the corner all aloof, as to say " yeah, that's too easy..."
My favourite was when Higgins took a Souray (or possibly Rivet) slapshot off the leg, found the puck, turned and fired for a goal, and then just skated right to the locker room. Never left his feet once, showed his determination. All in a day's work.
None of our players have the celebration style of a Barnaby or a Brad Tapper... have you guys seen any of Tapper's goal celebrations? When he played for Atlanta a couple years back he got on a bit of a hot streak and every time he did an over the top enthusiastic celebration... I hope he makes Philly's team just so we can get the occasional Tapper celebration next year.
I agree with the selection of Saku Koivu. He's like a little kid when he scores, he jumps up and down, sometimes into the other players' arms and he all around looks like he's having the time of his life.
With Alex Kovalev, most of the time he has the broad look after he scores a goal, but I think in the playoffs last year when he scored in Game 1 or 2, he had the biggest smile on his face. I was so happy to see that.
my FAVORITE was Saku's OT winner last season when he was on the semi breakaway, after he scored he skated full speed into the corner to celebrate and goes to jump on Higgins and Higgins stops and Saks goes flying into the boards...lol...that was CLASSIC!!!
