At the end when he was asked if he's ever heard the crowd this loud, I couldn't help but think of the game when he first came back from Cancer.

Koivu is a first line centre.

Good on Saku, the guy is a winner in the true sense of the word...huge heart and pure class. He's more than worthy to wear that C on his jersey.

All haters can eat me. He played like a leader and champ tonight. Anyone who knows hockey knows he was a true warrior tonight. On on a broken foot he wins 71% of his faceoffs last game and 58% tonight.

But most importantly, he won a ton of battles along the boards and winning a battle against Chara (who is nearly a foot taller and 90 pounds heavier...) in the first really set the tone. This team is different with him.

I love this guy. 3 assists in 2 games and a ton of heart. The little warrior really helped his team tonight. Congrats to Saku.
It makes us all realize how much different our offense is with him in the lineup. We seem to always take him for granted. It's no coincidence Chris Higgins stepped up his game when Saku came back. This team needs Saku. When he went down with the bloody eye vs Carolina two years ago the team was never the same. We'd have won that series if he were in the lineup.

No doubt about it. Ahead 2-0 in the series and game 3 is tied at 1 (I beleived) when Williams carved out his eyes.

Exactly why I can't read or listen to a certain media any longer. Saying that the Habs were better without him(Koivu) when they were winning, there's a reason why this guy is Captain! The team overcame a lot last evening, & will continue!!!

He has looked so dynamic since his first shift. Nothing is gonna stop him.

Tonight, wow many times did Koivu outhustle or even outmuscle players who have at least 4 inches on him? And he's been doing it his whole life. He sees the puck and then just ****ing gets it, in the blink of an eye.

SAKU

I hate to say it but the silence of Koivu's detractors is quite pleasing.

The past 2 games showed how much the Canadiens missed Koivu in the line-up.
First 5 games (without Koivu): 10 goals
Last 2 games (with Koivu): 9 goals

Not only did it make the top 2 lines stronger, but Koivu (5'10") isn't afraid to go to the boards and fight for the puck against someone like Chara (6'9"). He also wins lots of face-offs.

Adding Kovalev to his wing forced Julien to put Chara against the Koivu line, allowing skilled players (Kostitsyns & Plekanec) to utilize their skills.

I still remember my uncle bugging me for buying a non-Canadian players jersey, "Don't you like Recchi?", "Yeah, but Saku is the future."

That was '97! I've never added the C.

When they return and they will return, trust me, we should give the Saku detractors the same treatment we gave the Bruins fans:





with maybe a few:

I'm so happy for Saku, proved once again why he is our leader. His return was definetly the difference maker, our offence was non-existant after game one and he came back and we had 9 goals in the last 2 game. Lovin that kovy-saku-higgins line. Congrats Saku

You're absolutely right!! Our scoring woes went away with his return. He is without a doubt the engine of this team.

Here's an audio clip from Habs Inside Out of Komisarek talking about Koivu. Says it all.

Thomas froze it, and Koivu immediately skated over to Kovalev and tapped his hand as if to say "good work" or "nice try" or "I'll get that one next time".

It was a huge sign for me.

SAKU KOIVU BABY. GO HABS GO.
I noticed that too. Thought it was real important for the moral of the team. Kovalev might be the fire, but Saku's the the fuel that powers this team. Between them they took Chara off his game and Lucic was INVISIBLE.

Every nhl team would love to have a koivu for the playoffs. He can do so much on the ice.
