Dynamic, out-of-character move on his goal. Epic vision and pass execution on the GWG. All while clearly having some minor injury struggles.

Maybe it's time for captain america to show up next game? ;)

I thought Parise had an excellent game. I was hoping he could find a goal. Kovy's pass was indeed clutch.

Parise's back check on that 2-1 that forced weiss's shot wide likely saved the game.

And that was immediately before the GWG sequence. Parise had a fantastic game.

I thought Parise did ok as well. (Just poking fun at the kovy-naysayers. :P ) However, for a man who's probably looking for a 7M/year contract on july 1st, I'd expect him to stick out from the crowd a bit more clearly.

Well whatever it is...it's something lower body with Kovalchuk because he's not skating with the same speed and power as before

Parise saved the game on the over time back check.If it wasn't for that play there is no game 7 on thursday!

That powerplay goal was great. Everyone else was working the one side and distracted the PK unit from noticing Kovalchuk sneaking in backdoor. It's exactly what they needed on the chance earlier when they made a bunch of quick passes low on the right side of the zone and Clemmensen made the save.

Like to see more of that from Kovy. He seems to become an easy target shooting from the point and blasting one timers from the halfboards. If he can make plays like that more often I feel our PP would flourish with him being a constant focus for opponents PKs. Certainly could benefit other guys on the PP.

He played almost 25 minutes in regulation. He can stand, he just has no skating pop. He could as easily be tired as he could be hurt.

They didn't pay attention to him because what he did was insane, so you wouldn't expect it. Hell, the guys away from him probably thought he was heading off.

Plus Kovy's at the point or the halfboards waiting for the one-timer 99% of the time on the PP and they probably figured he was still in that general location, that was a gutsy time to pinch in, though it could have backfired with the penalty almost ending.

Completely agree... his face... his celebration... after the sheer level of awesome & excitement died down I couldn't help but crack up. Misses the whole season, comes back in the playoffs to have an outstanding series. What a hero!

He's been doing that ALL YEAR. Not so out-of-character as you may think. He's been an effective quarterback all year round, which usually leads to people screaming "Kovy, why didn't you shoot that?!?!?!?!" when the play doesn't end up being a goal. But flying under the radar, he's become a phenomenal playmaker this season.

Zajac was the number #1 star for a reason.

The plan is to undermine the role of an independent press while constantly whining that any reportage that deviates from a staunch conservative narrative is biased … while at the same time filling the editorial vacuum that that creates by filling the propaganda juggernaut from under the guise of a news organization. And that organization would be called Fox News.

Socialism is no more impractical than capitalism - either in their purest form are ridiculous, unachievable ideals. A healthy society requires healthy doses of both.
