The problem is Kovalev is a puck hog, will rarely pass it unless he knows he can't make a play, but by that time he usually loses it, he just runs up and down the half boards trying to deke players. Since Kovalev is usually in possession of the puck, Plekanec, since he normally doesn't get the puck, will try to either hold it for as long as possible or shoot directly on net.

I said this before Andrei got hurt that niether Kovalev, nor Plekanec was passing to Andrei, and that he rarely touched the puck because of the other two.

Kovalev has to realize that the line wasn't great because of him, it was great because the three were playing together!
