Kulikov managed an assist, four blocked shots and two PIM in Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Sabres.

Kulikov set up a Jon Merrill goal in the first period. The assist snapped a three-game point drought for Kulikov, who could be in line for a top-four role with Jared Spurgeon aggravating his recent lower-body injury in Thursday's contest. Kulikov is at 13 points, 19 shots on net, 32 hits, 31 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating in 28 outings.
