I thought Luckyteabags was about to assist on Kovy's second there for a second. You can tell Kovy is getting tired though, hopefully Deboer lets him sit out the rest assuming we win in reg.

The first two periods were absolutely brutal. These are total make up calls for all the bs that happened before the third

There aremake up calls, and what we're seeing right now. The refs gave the Devils a second 5 on 3. We definitely got the better side of the deal.

Kovy should play like this every game, i think anything less is unacceptable. I mean he doesn't need to play these minutes, but when hes on the ice I see no reason why he shouldn't play as strong a game as he currently is playing.

 

Also I'm loving all our pick ups, loktinov + butler.

we need him to last until his late thirties. :)

Unacceptable? Other teams look for ways to shut down Kovalchuk the way we shut down Crosby and Malkin and Giroux. It's a two-way street. Can't expect an effort like this every night.

I thought Loki may have been better off taking that shot, he almost had an open lane to the net.  I don't blame him for giving it to Kovy though because kovy is fvcking awesome and is taking over this game.

Why are people spelling Loki? Shouldnt his nickname be Lokti?

 

Agree, for the record Lokti sounds better too.

Okay, so let's just note the fact that the glass was just broken by a slapshot for the "let's reduce goalie gear" thread. Try getting hit with a shot that hard, even with modern gear.

The reverse did happen...in the second period :P  This game is just one giant clusterfvck.  Funny how a couple of recent games have been non-officiated and this one's been so over-officiated it's ridiculous.

Well I will agree with you on this one! B ) Sorry if I came across as a jerk before, I have a massive headache and turn into a b**** when it happens sometimes.

Well I'm just testy over this defensive situation (re: Fayne sitting) in general lol

 

And this game kinda sucked, win or no win.  Although Lokti getting such a big goal is a huge plus.

im not talking about scoring or making plays, im talking about effort. Kovy tends to be very lazy especially on teh forecheck. Tonight he put in 100percent effort. I can't say that I see him do that often, we overlook it because of how skilled he is.

On second thought maybe there is a conspiracy to get the Caps the first pick in the draft.

If he gave the effort he gave tonight every game, he'd be dead. The dude is a horse but he's playing 30 minutes a night. There are times where it's smart for him to not try to be everywhere at once and go all out for every loose puck. That's just the truth.

lol he's playing 20something minutes a night do you want 100% max effort every shift? And lazy and kovy don't go together anymore. Would you dare say he's enigmatic?

That's the other thing that has me on edge...Kovy-borg's icetime.  I'm shocked it wasn't over 30 tonight considering he played like fifteen of those minutes in the third period with all those PP's :P
