94 Finals gm 3 in VAN, Kovalev goal

Ok, Rangers are up in the series 2-1 but down 2-0 in Vancouver in game 3 of the finals, score two to tie it, now in the third period. Leetch with an end-to-end rush, blows by Brian Glynn at the blue line, goes to the right faceoff circle and slides a sweet pass to Kovalev who comes streaking through the slot. Kovalev chips in a pretty as you please one timer over Kirk McLean's glove and the Rangers go up 3-2, and are about to go up 3-1 in the series, heading back to the Garden. What a great moment- we all remember it right?

So after Kovelev scores, NOBODY comes to celebrate with him. NOBODY. (On the ice at the time were Noonan, Matteau, Zubov and Leetch). Alex skates over to Leetch, who doesn't even acknowledge him, and skates right by. Anybody ever notice that?

Alex is a young player having a YUGE playoff, and yet gets snubbed by his teammates at a pivotal moment.

So what's up with that?
