  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Adds assist in loss

    Kucherov posted an assist and two hits in Monday's 6-1 loss to the Panthers in Game 5.

    Kucherov stayed hot in the postseason with seven assists over five games, but he wasn't able to put a puck past Sergei Bobrovsky. The 30-year-old Kucherov had an excellent 2023-24 season despite the early playoff exit, earning 44 goals and 100 assists in 81 regular-season appearances. He should continue to be one of the top right wings in the NHL heading into 2024-25.

  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Three helpers in Saturday's win

    Kucherov recorded three assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Panthers in Game 4.

    Two of the helpers came in the third period as the Lightning put the game away. Kucherov is still looking for his first goal of the postseason, but he's found the scoresheet in all four contests so far while collecting six assists. He may need to come up big again in Game 5 on Monday if Tampa Bay is going to avoid elimination again.

  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Makes history in finale

    Kucherov scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Maple leafs.

    His second-period helper on a Brayden Point tally put Kucherov in the history books as the fifth player in NHL history to accumulate 100 assists in a season -- rarified air that was previously only reached by Wayne Gretzky (a mind-boggling 11 times), Mario Lemieux and Bobby Orr (once each) before both Kucherov and Connor McDavid did it in 2023-24. Kucherov claimed his second scoring title with a career-high 144 points through 81 games -- his 44 goals were also a personal best. Kucherov will lead the Lightning into the playoffs beginning Sunday against the Panthers.

  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Approaching historic assist mark

    Kucherov had two assists in a 3-2 shootout loss to Ottawa on Thursday.

    Kucherov makes seamless passes look effortless. Kucherov now has 141 points, including 98 assists, to lead the NHL in scoring. He has put up five straight multi-point games (one goal, 13 assists). Kucherov and the Bolts have three games left, and the winger has a very real chance to hit the century mark in assists by season's end. Wayne Gretzky (11 times), Mario Lemieux (1988-89) and Bobby Orr (1970-71) are the only NHLers to have recorded triple-digit assists in a season.

  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Three helpers in Pittsburgh

    Kucherov picked up three assists, two on the power play, in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Penguins.

    The 30-year-old winger has his sights set on the Art Ross Trophy. Kucherov has reeled off three straight three-point performances and has failed to get onto the scoresheet only once in the last 20 games, erupting for seven goals and 42 points over that stretch. He leads the NHL scoring race with 136 points (43 goals, 93 assists), putting him five points up on Nathan MacKinnon and six points clear of Connor McDavid.

  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Second straight three-point game

    Kucherov put up a goal and two assists Thursday in a 7-4 win over Montreal.

    It was Kucherov's second straight three-point game and his 21st of the season. He extended his NHL-leading point total to 133 (43 goals, 90 assists). Kucherov also leads the NHL with 47 power-play points, three ahead of Nathan MacKinnon. But Mack is in hot pursuit of both the overall points lead and power-play points lead. The Art Ross Trophy title is going to come right down to the wire.

  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Reaches 130 points with three helpers

    Kucherov collected three assists in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Maple Leafs.

    The 30-year-old winger had a helper in each period to power the Bolts to their fourth win in the last five games. Kucherov is on a massive heater to close out the campaign, erupting for four goals and 23 points over the last 10 games, and he's the first player in the NHL to get to 130 points on the season. Kucherov sits three points up on Nathan MacKinnon in the race for the Art Ross Trophy with a game in hand, but Connor McDavid is only four points back of Kucherov and has two extra games to play. Expect the battle for the NHL scoring lead to go down to the wire.

  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Continues on career-best pace

    Kucherov picked up two assists Saturday in a 4-1 victory over the Islanders.

    Kucherov now sits second in league scoring with 126 points, one point behind Nathan MacKinnon and one ahead of Connor McDavid. With nine games remaining, Kucherov will undoubtedly shatter his career-best mark of 128 points set in 2018-19. That was the season Kucherov won the Hart, Ted Lindsay and Art Ross Trophies. It's a tight race this season, but he will contend for the major awards again.

  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Sets career high with empty-netter

    Kucherov scored an empty-net goal on two shots in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Bruins.

    Kucherov saw a 13-game point streak end in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Ducks. He nearly went two games without a point, but he was able to bury an empty-netter in the final minute to avoid his first multi-game drought since Oct. 30-Nov. 2. He's up to a career-high 42 goals, 124 points, 276 shots on net, 40 hits and a plus-7 rating through 71 appearances this season.

  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Powers offense with four points

    Kucherov scored an empty-net goal on two shots and added three assists in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Golden Knights.

    All three of Kucherov's helpers were of the primary variety, as he set up Anthony Duclair once and Brayden Point twice. The four-point effort was Kucherov's sixth multi-point performance during his 11-game, 24-point streak, with just four of those points coming on the power play. He's retaken the NHL's scoring lead with 118 points (41 tallies, 77 helpers) while adding 261 shots on net, 44 power-play points and a plus-3 rating over 67 appearances on the year.

  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Ten-game, 20-point streak

    Kucherov had a goal and an assist in a 5-3 win over Florida on Saturday.

    Kucherov has four goals and 16 assists during his 10-game scoring spree. The goal was his 40th of the campaign, and it's the third time in his career that he has scored at least 40 times in a single season. Kucherov is on his way to a possible 50-goal, 140-point finish, which would both be new career marks. He is among the top contenders for his second Hart Trophy, but it's a lengthy list with Connor McDavid, Nathan MacKinnon and Auston Matthews also in the mix.
