Absolutely HUGE loss.

Here’s a nice breakdown of how Markov impacts the Habs.

Special thanks to Matt Cooke.

Speaking of Cooke, in three of his last four series he has been responsible for eliminating a key member of the opposition in the first game of each series:

- Eric Cole (ACL)
- Milan Michalek (ACL)
- Markov (ACL)

Way to go, Matt!
