National Hockey League slaps Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov with one-game suspension

National Hockey League slaps Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov with one-game suspension”

He has zero points through two games against Columbus though, with Steven Stamkos (98 points during the regular season-45 goals, 53 assists) and Brayden Point (92 points during the regular season-41 goals, 51 assists) each also putting up doughnuts in the scoring column for Tampa Bay thus far in the series.

The Blue Jackets have been in this heady position before in the post-season, just before they fell on their faces.

Kucherov has zero points through the first two games of the series. The DOPS determined that on the play, Kucherov skated toward the "defenseless Nutivaara, lowered himself for contact, and drives him into the boards", according to a video explanation released on Saturday.

While this surge ahead is clearly good news for Columbus, just previous year the Blue Jackets were up 2-0 in the first round against the Washington Capitals on the road before losing the next four games and the series.

The incident occurred late in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series. "It's a series for a reason". This team's the best hockey team in the world, go at them.' Everybody else goes in a little afraid.

The Lightning defenseman was on his way back to the bench when he chirped Columbus' bench. "We have to take a page out of their book and go on the road and win a hockey game".

Hits like this often result in the NHL's now notable "five and a game" situation in which the player is penalized both in the game and a suspension in the team's next outing.

"He got a little banged up last night", coach Jon Cooper said.
