A PERFECT road game.
And an eighth shutout for Carey Price.
Canadiens excelled in all aspects of the game to win 4-1.
Great work by all four lines.
Cristobal Huet superb.
A huge W, and Super Bowl weekend is off to a super start.
Alex Kovalev got a leg up on the February Molson Cup by being named first star and talked about the team’s high level of confidence.
"We put a lot of traffic in front of (Rick DiPietro)," Kovalev said. "We know how good he is when he sees the puck. On a few goals we scored today, he couldn’t see the puck. It’s definitely harder for the goalie."
Kovalev was asked if he enjoyed the 3:12 he played on the Canadiens’ PK.
"As long as I’m skating, as long as I’m on the ice I enjoy it," he said. "We do our best. The PK wasn’t great through the first half of the season.
"Coach decided to use me once in a while. It looks like it works. I don’t mind. The more he trusts me, the mmore he trusts all the players, the better we play."
In Kovy we trust.
Bring on the Rangers.
