GIFs of the Week: Showtime baby

Rory Boylen
Patrick Kane

In the newest weekly feature on THN’s Post-to-Post, we provide you with a collection of GIFs to look back on the week that was.

This week we start in Russia and swing by Chicago, Colorado and Pittsburgh.

Ponikovy

We’ll call this Ilya Kovalchuk’s “Welcome to the KHL moment” and Alex Ponikarovsky’s “Holy crap I’m on a line with Ilya Kovalchuk” moment.

Call it karma, call it bad luck, but Kovalchuk may miss a month with a shoulder injury sustained on the play. “Wouldn’t have happened in New Jersey,” I imagine Devils GM Lou Lamoriello saying.

Showtime
Patrick Kane’s first goal celebration of the year. Showtime baby.

Royboudreau

We assume the Patrick Roy-Bruce Boudreau tiff was all about a combination of a) Roy putting his fourth line out for the last faceoff, b) Ben Lovejoy’s knee on Nathan MacKinnon and c) the fact Boudreau didn’t like Roy yelling at one of his players (Corey Perry).

But maybe Roy was just upset that Boudreau was pointing at him. Pointing is rude.

fleurysave

And finally, a reminder who the Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cup hopes rely on: the guy who hasn’t had a .900 or better post-season save percentage since 2008-09. Carry on.
