Reason I bring this up is that Kings fans were combined Brown and Richards had injuries throughout the SCF and there was never any post season surgery. In fact, the only kKing I know of that had surgery after the Cup win was Quick.
It was reported as a herniated disc (
Like the Kings also probably had several other players injured also and go for surgery, the Devils had that happen with Fayne (wrist) and Elias (groin)
Difference between Kovy and the other two though were that Fayne still seemed himself for the most part and although Elias struggled at times, it wasn't too noticable he was nursing a messed up groin - Kovy though it was completely obvious and was to the point he had to sit out a game - Kovy's normal acceleration like that of a ferrari was that of a hummer during the playoffs
