7 more goals, 7 more games. Is it possible he has an hot streak at the end of the season? If he gets a hat trick next game, only 4 will be left for 6 games. Do you think it is possible for him to accomplish such a feat?
A couple of months ago, on a similar thread, I made a prediction that Kovy would end the season with 35 goals and 50 assists for 85 points. He only needs 2 goals and 6 assists for 8 points in the last 7 remaining games for it to happen.
Tim Thomas is living the nightmare in his sleep. Nightmare on Kovalev streak.
If Montreal has a 6-8 goal outburst tomorrow which isn't out of the ordinary this year against the Bruins then I expect Kovalev could pot another 2 or 3 goals and an assist or two to further pad his stats. This would make it more likely for him to hit 40 goals. I really get the feeling Montreal will explode for an abundance of goals tomorrow just because Boston is just mentally beaten by the Habs after they played their best game against us this season only to lose again. We'll see what Alex Auld has to offer them. Convincing victory tomorrow with at least 6 Habs goals scored.
