The Lightning and Kucherov learned Thursday the NHL announced that the 2019-20 season has been suspended until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic. In a statement released Thursday, commissioner Gary Bettman said "In light of ongoing developments resulting from the coronavirus, and after consulting with medical experts and convening a conference call of the Board of Governors, the National Hockey League is announcing today that it will pause the 2019-20 season beginning with tonight's games." Bettman went on to say "Our goal is to resume play as soon as it is appropriate and prudent so that we will be able to complete the season and award the Stanley Cup. Until then, we thank NHL fans for your patience and hope you stay healthy."
Kucherov put up a goal and assist in Thursday's 4-0 win over Montreal. Kucherov had points in 19 straight games (30 points), but that streak was snapped Tuesday against Boston. But he's back on the score sheet now and ready to start his next streak. Kucherov is clearly one of the most consistent scorers over the last few seasons. He's a fantasy pillar.
Kucherov picked up two power-play assists in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Flames. He wasted little time extending his point streak to 19 games, helping to set up Tyler Johnson for the game's opening goal midway through the first period. Kucherov has amassed a dazzling 14 goals and 31 points over his streak, and remarkably little of that production had come with the man advantage -- he had only one goal and two helpers on the power play in the prior 18 contests.
Kucherov netted a goal and assist Thursday in a 5-2 loss to Chicago. His excellence continues. Kucherov has put up at least a point in 18 consecutive games, although it's not an official streak because he missed a game. But he's peaking at the right time for head-to-head owners who love his current consistency. Kucherov has 14 goals and 15 assists across those 18 games and 78 points in 62 contests this season.
Kucherov recorded a power-play assist and three shots on goal in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Golden Knights. Kucherov has racked up 12 goals and 13 helpers in his last 15 appearances -- he missed a game in that span to keep the streak from being official. The helper Thursday was just his third power-play point in that span. For the season, the winger has 74 points (22 on the power play), 183 shots and a plus-27 rating in 59 games.
