Kovy always steps up when a teammates gets hit. He destroyed a few Panthers over the boards during the regular season during a chippy game. Obliterated Tyler Myers after Myers went after Zubrus's head. Kovalchuk took out Richards in the second home game against the Rangers in the reg. season after Richards and Cally were hitting everyone. He took the body against DelZotto which was the key play for Carters GWG in game 5. All easily searchable on youtube and there are many other examples out there.
Thats kind of my point, like he could be probably a better physical player than Ovie he just doesn't really play that way consistently
