We’ve told Ottawa Senators fans to be ready for a crazy roller-coaster ride with Alex Kovalev, because we’ve been there, seen that.
Never has there been more of an enigma in hockey than Alex Kovalev, and once again he wakes people up to the fact that sometimes, when the stars are lined up properly, the guy is sensational. And I stress the word “sometimes.’
The guy hadn’t scored in ten games, which happens when you’re Alex Kovalev. And then, because you’re Alex Kovalev, you score four goals and add an assist in a game against the Flyers.
Winston Churchill must have met a lot of Kovalev-types in his day, and when he spoke of Russia, he could’ve been talking about number 27 for the Ottawa Senators. “I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest.”
I suppose Churchill meant that to get Kovalev going on a regular basis, he has to be loved by everyone nationally. That ain’t gonna happen, so Sens fans, prepare for another Kovy slump coming up soon.
