  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Openly critical of teammates

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/27/17) Kucherov has been openly critical of his teammates following Tampa's failure to get to the postseason, reports Sportsnet.ca.

    Kucherov originally spoke to Sovietsky Sports in his mother country. "They got their money and stopped working." said Kucherov, who performed well this season despite the line juggling he saw. He set career marks in goals (40) and points (85). Right now, this situation doesn't warrant a trade -- Kucherov is adamant he wants to play in just a single NHL city. But bad blood is bad blood.

    Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Posts two points in Friday's win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/7/17) Kucherov scored a goal, added an assist and finished with a plus-1 rating in Friday's 4-2 win against the Canadiens.

    Kucherov has been a little under the weather lately, which might be the reason he started with just one assist over his first three games this month. He has scored goals in back-to-back road games, however, including the game-winning tally in Toronto on Thursday in a huge win for the Lightning.

    Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: On track to return Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/1/17) Kucherov (illness) is expected to play Saturday night versus the Canadiens, Bryan Burns of NHL.com reports.

    That's a relief for the Lightning and fantasy owners alike considering the Bolts have been without Steven Stamkos (knee), Tyler Johnson (lower body), and Cedric Paquette (lower body) to leave the center spot largely devoid of established options. Kucherov is an amazing talent, currently tied with Boston's Brad Marchand for second in league scoring (38 goals) while sitting alone for sixth place in total points with 80.

    Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Out sick Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/30/17) Kucherov is sick and will not play Thursday night's game against the Red Wings.

    With just 11 healthy forwards on the roster following Kucherov's sudden illness, the Lightning will be in the precarious position of playing with double-shifters -- Ondrej Palat and Brayden Point took line rushes on their own as Tampa Bay's top line. Assuming Kucherov's illness is nothing serious, he'll set his sights on Saturday's game against the Canadiens.

    Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Pads points column with two helpers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/28/17) Kucherov picked up two power-play assists during Monday's overtime win against Chicago.

    It was the fifth consecutive multi-point showing (seven goals and four assists) for Kucherov, and he's up to 38 goals and 80 points through 68 games for the campaign. Additionally, his 1.18 points per game rank second behind only Sidney Crosby (1.19). Kucherov is showing no signs of slowing down, establishing himself as one of the game's premier scorers.
