And Kovalev gets booed by Canadiens fans... why? Because they didn't re-sign him?
If anything, they should be cheering him tonight. He's done more for them than against them.
He got a big hand when he was announced in the starting line up (Huberdeau also got a nice applause). He wasn't loved by everyone (sometimes lazy/inconsistent) and it doesn't take many people to be heard booing when he touches the puck.
As a Sen some people booed and some people cheered when he touched the puck, but he received a standing O when he scored against us and another one after the game ended.
