Kucherov picked up a power-play assist in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights. Remarkably, it was Kucherov's first power-play point in 2018. He continues to lead the NHL with 61 points overall.
Kucherov scored his league-leading 27th goal in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Red Wings. Both he and Alexander Ovechkin scored Sunday, so they remain tied at the top of the NHL. Kucherov has a three-game, three-point streak on the go right now and his consistency this season is legendary. He has been held off the scoresheet just seven times in 42 games and never for more than two games. Kucherov's star continues to shine.
Kucherov scored the Lightning's only regulation goal in Thursday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Canadiens. The goal was his 26th and tied him with Alexander Ovechkin for the NHL lead. Kucherov's 10-game scoring streak had come to an end against Toronto on Tuesday, but he's right back at it. He leads the league with 57 points.
Kucherov pushed his point streak to 10 games and 16 points with a goal and assist in Sunday's 5-0 road victory in Columbus. He also regained sole possession of the goal-scoring lead in the NHL with 25 goals. Kucherov already has an NHL-best 12-game streak this season, but that's in peril with the hot sauce he continues to pour on his game. The best part? His 17.8 shooting percentage is only marginally higher than his career mark (14.9), so there is unlikely to be a lull in his excellence.
Kucherov extended his point streak to nine games with two assists in a 5-3 loss to Philadelphia on Friday. The last time Kucherov failed to get on the scoresheet was Dec. 7, and he's put up 14 points in the past three weeks. He's leading the league for the Art Ross Trophy with 54 points in 37 games and is showing no signs of slowing down on Tampa Bay's high-powered top line.
