This is likely a bit of a bummer for those holding out hope that Kovy might return right at two weeks. It now seems more likely that Kovalchuk will return in the season's final two weeks, which stands to be an incredibly important stretch for the Devils. New Jersey's final 14 days include games against the Leafs, Penguins, Flyers, Panthers and Canadiens with two games against the rival Rangers. If Kovy were able to get back for that Toronto game on April 15, that would still give him enough time to get back into shape and make an impact in the Devils' lineup before the playoffs. The question, of course, is whether the Devils will be in the playoff picture or on the outside looking by that point.
