Sergei Kostitsyn’s Inexplicable Line Change is the NHL’s “Worst Play of the Year” (Video)
Earlier in the month, the Nashville Predators decided to experiment with their power-play by moving forward Sergei Kostitsyn to the point on their first power-play unit.
They might want to abandon that experiment after watching Kostitsyn inexplicably quit on a play and go off for a line change after the puck bounced over his stick and into the neutral zone during a Predators’ power-play last night. The result was a 2-on-1 for the Oilers’, which Lennart Petrell converted for the game-winning goal during Edmonton’s 2-1 victory.

On second thought, rather than simply abandoning the power-play experiment, perhaps the Predators should take a page from the Montreal Canadiens’ book and consider abandoning the Sergei Kostitsyn experiment all together.
