Lindy on Kovy

Here's Lindy Ruff's reaction to the Devils' acquisition of sniper Ilya Kovalchuk from Atlanta:

"They're getting a gifted goal scorer. They talked a little bit how they were hurting for goals and they went and got the biggest fish in the pond. When you realize you're having a tough time scoring goals, I don't think the adjustment will be that big (for Kovalchuk to play with coach Jacques Lemaire). With [Patrik] Elias out of the lineup, with the offense they've lost, that could make them pretty dangerous when you put a Kovalchuk in."

Believe it or not,the Devils Web site has compiled a minute-by-minute live blog of Kovalchuk's morning skate with his new team prior to tonight's game against Toronto.
