Konstantinov did show up on the PK. But Lidstrom played against Lindros at even strength with Murphy, although Lids was more instrumental than Murph in shutting down Lindros. The same way he shut down Bertuzzi with Olausson as his partner, while the press were fixated on the non-existent Chelios-Bertuzzi matchup.
