He's had some stretches of good play and poor play, he needs to be consistently good and get the W tonight. I still think he needs to prove he's a go to player, he's been alright, but it's not like I have huge confidence in the guy, I'm still on the fence about him.
He was at a funeral in Toronto on Monday so maybe there's a chance. I doubt he's worried about the travel but maybe he needs this week off. Some people are different though and would rather just focus mainly on their job (hockey in this case) to keep their mind off it. Redden was a good example of that.
Anyways, I expect a big game from King K. He's due for a big performance and this is a big game.
Kovalchuk is always a delight to watch so the game will be entertaining regardless of Ottawa's performance.
Tonight we exorcize the demons that have been plaguing our power play lately.
The power of our slap shots compels you! The power of our rebounds compels you! The power of our redirections compels you! The power of our passing compels you! The power of Neil standing in front of you compels you! The power of your B.O. makes the refs hate you!
