I think you're reading waaaaaaaay too much into what he said. What Kovalev is saying, is that by cutting outside-inside he froze Richards which led to a knee-on-knee hit.
If you think, for one second, that Kovalev WANTED to be hit knee on knee, you've never played a game of hockey in your life.
Knee on knee hits, even at low speed, can cause devastating damage. No player would ever put themselves intentionally in a position to be hit knee-on-kne.
It is like saying some players want to be driven head first into the boards. NOBODY wants a knee on knee
