Kucherov scored two goals and added an assist in Monday's 5-1 win over the Canadiens in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Adding to his postseason lead in points, Kucherov scored his sixth goal of the playoffs after his shot bounced off Ben Chiarot twice in front of Carey Price and found its way to the back of the Habs net. The 28-year-old then added to the team's lead in the third period, scoring from the slot for his seventh goal, then added an assist on Steven Stamkos' power-play goal late to close the door. Kucherov has been outstanding this postseason, making his case for the Conn Smythe Trophy should the Bolts win the Stanley Cup in back-to-back seasons, with seven goals and 23 assists in 19 playoff games.
