"ZKK Line, World Class Athletes" - Mike Sullivan

Rds.ca

"Zednik, Kovalev et Koivu sont trois joueurs de classe mondiale"
-Mike Sullivan

Mardi 20 avril 2004 - MONTREAL (PC) - José Théodore a eu le mérite de se ressaisir et de sortir le gros match au bon moment. Mais on ne peut pas dire qu'il a connu une grande série dans l'ensemble.

La belle victoire du Canadien, qui a éliminé les Bruins de Boston en sept rencontres, lundi, en est une d'équipe. Mais il y a un trio qui a plus de mérite que les autres, celui d'Alex Kovalev, Saku Koivu et Richard Zednik.

Ces trois joueurs ont totalisé 10 buts et 24 points en sept matchs en plus de neutraliser le trio de Joe Thornton. Ils ont aussi marqué les deux seuls buts et amassé six points dans le match décisif. Difficile d'en demander plus.



Koivu a complété la première ronde des séries au premier rang des compteurs avec un total de 10 points (2-8), un de mieux que Markus Naslund, des Canucks de Vancouver (2-7-9), et deux devant Kovalev (5-3), à égalité avec trois autres joueurs ayant totalisé huit points. Le Russe est aussi le meilleur marqueur, avec cinq buts.

Quant à Zednik (3-3-6), il a marqué les deux buts du match décisif et son différentiel de plus-7 est le meilleur avec celui de Peter Forsberg, de l'Avalanche du Colorado.

Classe mondiale

Mike Sullivan a rendu un bel hommage au Canadien et à son premier trio en déclarant après l'élimination de son équipe: "Le Canadien est fort en défense et il a très bien protégé le centre de la patinoire.

"Il est aussi difficile de bien se défendre contre le trio de Koivu. Zednik (le Slovaque), Kovalev (le Russe) et lui (Koivu, le Finlandais) sont trois joueurs de classe mondiale."

Les trois ont passé plus de 20 minutes sur la patinoire lors du dernier match, un total atteint seulement par Joe Thornton chez les autres attaquants des deux clans.

Quand il a été blessé par une dure mise en échec de Kyle McLaren, contre ces mêmes Bruins il y a deux ans, Zednik dominait les compteurs des séries avec un impressionnant total de quatre buts et huit points en autant de matchs.

Il a assuré ne pas considérer ses deux derniers buts comme une vengeance.

"Je n'ai pas vraiment pensé à ça. Je suis juste content qu'on ait gagné", a-t-il déclaré.

Zednik, en passant, a marqué le but victorieux à 10:52 sur le tout premier lancer crédité au Canadien à la troisième période, après neuf des Bruins.

This sounds so damn good. Could some one give me the jist of what this is saying.

Im guessing, Koivu, Kovalev, Zednik are a very athletic line and world class???

-Jose came out big at the right time but we can't say he had a overall good series

-The habs' defeat over the booins was simply a team thing... but theres one line that deserves more credit than the others (KKZ line)

- The KKZ line got 10 goals and 24 points in 7 games and on top of that, they neutralized the 700 pound line. They got the two goals (and 6 points) in the last game; its hard to ask for a more than that.

- Then it goes on about our team leaders stats and how they rank in the league...

- Sullivan says: "The canadiens are strong on defence and they protected the neutral zone very well." He also adds how the KKZ line is hard to contain and that their a world class line.

- Then it talks about how Zednifer dominated the playoffs 2 years ago before the accident...
And then it says he(Zed.) did not look at his last two goals as revenge. He was just glad they won.

That's the jist of it.

what Mike Sullivan is saying mouch is that,our z kk line is so world class that he being the great coach he was ,couldnt do anything to stop them..

plain and simple mike sullivan is a average coach ,who got schooled by mr jullien..jullien seen what was and wasnt workin .
on the other hand, sullivan stayed with the 700 pound"piano on my back" line .

he's trying to find a out for his poor coaching abilities in the playoffs...
imho


but if he feels that the zkk line is the best in the nhl..i agree with him...

good luck mike sullivan..claude jullien will be holding coaching classes sometime around june or july..you might want to attend..

alll the best
