Kovalchuk Looking For Wins

from Craig Custance of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,

Yes, Kovalchuk’s 52 goals this season tied his own franchise record, but that’s not the number that will put him in the stratosphere with the league’s all-time best.

Only playoff wins do that, and after six seasons, Kovalchuk is still sitting at zero.

“It doesn’t matter how many goals you score — 50-goal season, 30-goal season, two-goal season. When you’re a loser, it’s the worst,” Kovalchuk said.
