One Point Out!
What a game last night. The top line of Kostitsyn-Plekanec-Kovalev is a real treat to watch. I've been a fan of this team my whole life and I've never seen them with guys that can move the puck like these three do on a nightly basis. The speed and precision with which they make their passes is stunning; Chris Higgins noted that Kovalev even leaves guys on the Habs' bench with jaws dropping the way he can keep the puck on a rope. I am as excited watching this team as I ever have been, and I would have to say that this is the best they've been since winning the Cup in '93. They're primed for a solid playoff run...will this be the year that they go for #25? And if so, how am I going to find the money to be there to see it?
