NEW YORK - Responding to critics claiming that he is a "puck hog" and "not a team player," forward Alex Kovalev gathered up 2 points and a +3 differential in last nights game against the New York Islanders. Kovalev set up Tomas Plekanec's second goal and scored his own into an empty net at 19:32 of the 3rd period to ice the game.

When questioned as to why he elected to take the empty net goal himself instead of passing off to a wide-open Plekanec for a hat-trick, Kovalev angrily responded, "look: everything I do out there, every play, every point, every deak, I do as a team." Kovalev then hugged himself and slapped his butt.
