  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Blanked again

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12:09 am ET) Kucherov was held off the score sheet Tuesday against the Sabres.

    It was the second straight game he had been shut down by his opponents and the first time that has happened since the very start of the season. Kucherov is remarkably consistent otherwise, so a two-game blip is nothing. But it is frustrating to owners, especially those in daily or head-to-head where every game counts. Kucherov will be back with a offensive vengeance soon enough.

    Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Oiler killer

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/6/18) Kucherov had two goals and an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Oilers.

    Like linemate Steven Stamkos, Kucherov has three multi-point games in his last five (four goals, four assists total). The guy is elite. And he has had the Oilers' number over the years -- to the tune of eight goals and 14 points in just nine games. Enjoy the ride -- Kucherov is on the rise.

    Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Scoring in reduced ice time

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/4/18) Kucherov set up two goals in a 4-1 win over the Canadiens on Saturday night.

    Kucherov is warming up -- he has 14 points in 13 games. But it is important to note that he saw just 15:26, including 3:19 on the power play, in Saturday's game. It's great that Kucherov is performing well with reduced ice time, but we'd like to see him in the 18-minute range. It's hard to argue with the Bolts' success, though -- they are the best in the East. Let's hope this ice time reduction is simply temporary.

    Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Returns from locker room

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/30/18) Kucherov (leg) returned for the third period of Tuesday's game versus the Devils, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

    It was a scary moment for the Lightning and fantasy owners alike, but all worries can be put away as Kucherov returned to the team's top line for the final frame.

    Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Heads to locker room in pain

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/30/18) Kucherov went to the dressing room after blocking a shot in the second period Wednesday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    The good news is that Kucherov was able to skate off the ice under his own power before heading down the tunnel. It appears he may have blocked the shot on a part where his shin pads didn't cover. Kucherov had a goal and an assist before leaving the game. Expect prompt updates on his condition.
