The Kovalev Factor

Always figured there was a reason the folks at Habsblog were so obsessed with this guy's impact [see their sidebar].

Tonight we found out why. Damn, this guy is deadly one-on-one. Can't believe the Sens let them back in this game, knowing there was no way he was going to be denied in the shootout.

Side note: With no Pacific TV broadcast and being stuck at work, I listened live to the Team Stream. The shootout is still exciting as hell even when you can't see what's going on.


  1. Hey, break down and get NHL Centre Ice. I got to watch the Sens collapse last night and it was sweet!!!

    I'm thinking that video of that shootout will be making the rounds of the league since it seems Domenik "drunken style" Hasek has some flaws afterall.

  2. mid/high blocker side seems to be the way to go!

    I'd like to see how he'd do in a shootout against Datsyuk, Zetterberg etc.
