  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Extends scoring streak

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/21/18) Kucherov scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 6-3 win over Chicago.

    Kucherov can't be stopped right now, scoring all seven of his points during an active five-game scoring streak. He put four shots on goal and skated over five minutes of power-play time for the third time this year.

    Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Scoring streak at four games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/21/18) Kucherov's assist Saturday in a 5-4 overtime loss extended his point streak to four games and five points (one goal, four assists).

    The sniper has been struggling to tickle the twine, but he's still getting points. Sooner or later, Kucherov is going to explode offensively. Be patient. You will be rewarded.

    Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Extends point streak

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/18/18) Kucherov collected an even-strength assist in Thursday's 3-1 home win over the Red Wings.

    Don't look now, but Kucherov has at least one point in three straight games after a slow start by his standards. The stud winger amassed 39 goals on a career-high 279 shots last season, though he's only averaging two shots per contest in the infancy of the 2018-19 campaign. Still, he's far too talented to be held down for long.

    Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Back with the triplets

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/14/18) Kucherov scored his first goal of the season Saturday against the Blue Jackets after being reunited on the "Triplets Line" with Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat.

    He also got an assist. Last season, Kucherov was electric with Steven Stamkos. But the Triplets Line was where it all began for Kucherov and the trio has uncanny chemistry.

    Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Ready for season opener

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/6/18) Kucherov (lower body) skated on the top power-play unit during morning skate, indicating he'll be in the lineup for Saturday's season opener against the Panthers, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

    Kucherov was held out of Tampa Bay's final two preseason contests due to a lower-body injury, but he shouldn't have any limitations Saturday night. The Russian winger had his best season as a pro in 2017-18, racking up 39 goals and 100 points in 80 contests, and should be considered a top-five fantasy option heading into the 2018-19 campaign.
