Without their captian due to injury and Defenseman Francis Bouillon out, can the Canadiens make it work?
That means Kovalev,the team’s scoring leader this season, will keep the captain’s “C”.
“One reason we were successful this year is that we avoided injuries,” Kovalev said. “It definitely hurts not to have Saku in the lineup, but a lot of guys are hungry ,we’ll see.”
Kovalev had seven goals and 11 points against the Bruins. The Candiens took all eight regular-season games agaisnt the Bruins. Also note that Linemate Andrei Kostitsyn, Mark Streit also had 11 points against Boston, while center Tomas Plekanec had 10.
But the Bruins are healthier than they’ve been all season.But the are starting with a center who has been out since October with a head injury. So we will see just how smart a decision that was on their part.They will need to prepare twice as hard now.
