Actually all you did there was prove how good Kovalchuk is. At 65-70ish percent max, many times looking like he was around 50%, which was due to injury, he still led his team in scoring. He just ran out of gas (and ran into a powerhouse Kings team) by the finals which is understandable when you have a severe back injury. Parise didn't have the same excuse, though Devils fans had grown used to him not stepping up his game in the playoffs. That's a yearly occurrence.
