Fixed. 'Cause one ridiculous statement is no worse than another.

I've read quotes from Kovalev's previous coaches who have stated that Kovalev would stay on the whole game if they let him. In a link I posted yesterday (?) I think it was mentioned that after staying out too long (according to the coach) the coach sarcastically told him to stay out when he approached the bench... like 5 times.

It wasn't until after the game (in the dressing room) that he found out it wasn't a reward for his play, the coach was probably just trying to make him puke or make a point.

Anyhoo, he's a guy who likes to play a lot, it was a close game, and he looked close to breaking something out a few times. I wouldn't look too much into it other than an opportunity to give one of your best players more ice time to ensure a win for the home opener.
