How? He was demoted to the 3rd line and had 1 point in the past 7 games. I wish him the best, but Habs win this easily.
“Demoted“? There’s little difference in our top 3 lines. And while this isn’t a loss for the habs by any means, it’s great for the caps. And you obviously haven’t been watching the games if you think that Kovalchuk hasn’t been playing well, even in the last 7 games, points or not.
