Ilya Kovalchuk’s Ice Time

from Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider,

Desjardins, on whether Ilya Kovalchuk’s 6:20 was a “coach’s decision”:

Yeah. [Reporter: What’s he not doing for you?] The tough part about that match-up is McDavid can come, he can either take a minute-thirty shifts, so then you’re running through two lines, or he comes back on right away. So, it was trying to keep guys away from McDavid a little bit tonight, and how they’re playing, that power play unit didn’t get a lot of time, either, so he didn’t get a lot of time there. I just think other guys were going tonight.

1:30 of Kovalchuk's ice time was on the power play.
