Kovalev Plans To Play Better

from the CP via the Globe and Mail,

Alex Kovalev admits he has to start playing better hockey, especially with injuries mounting on the Montreal Canadiens.

The big winger, who led the team with 84 points last season, was benched for most of the third period of a 3-1 loss to the Boston Bruins on Sunday for his listless play.

He then met with coach Guy Carbonneau to clear the air.

“He’s the coach, I’m a player, he does his job, I do mine,” Kovalev said Tuesday. “He’s not going to come on the ice and do my job, and when I do it better, everybody’s happy. So the important thing for me is to play better.”
