It may be the best moment of the year to play Pittsburgh. Half the city is probably still hungover.
Good times in Pennsylvania.
Maybe it would have been a better time to wear those pyjamas jerseys. There is no way you can cope with them if you’re half drunk.
Everyone will attentively watch how Kovalev reacts after he was benched sunday, and after his one on one discussion with Carbo yesterday. Meanwhile, Gorges is already back. I generally hate the military/sports analogies, but what a warrior… With all those injuries, Carbo had to change his lines again, and here is what he came up with:
Plekanec with Kovalev and Andrei Kostitsyn
Koivu with Higgins and D’Agostini
Lapierre with Sergei Kostitsyn and Pacioretty
Bégin with Kostopoulos and Henry
The third line could be interesting. And this fourth line is scary. But not in a good way.
This is a huge game, and I don’t even want to think about what tomorrow will look like if they play like shit tonight. Go habs go!
