Good point markov. I think he was shaken up by the shot off the foot and that you are right. He appeared lazy is what I should have said, but obviously he did a lot of little things in only five shifts.
This is where I think he hurt the shoulder: * Loose puck on boards, Kovalev tries to use his reach to get it and is rubbed out. Not skating hard....
He was reaching for the puck against the boards and his right arm was fully extended when the Coyote came in and threw a hard bodycheck that trapped his arm only. He kept playing, but I bet that's where it happened.
I wouldn't be surprised if his foot has a bad bruise as well from the Rivet point shot that he tried to redirect, because it was slightly off the ice.
