NHL suspends Lightning star Nikita Kucherov one game for boardinig

With Tampa Bay's leading scorer Nikita Kucherov suspended for Game 3 of the Lightning's First Round series against Columbus after boarding Blue Jackets defenseman Markus Nutivaara late in a Game 2 loss, Ryan Callahan will get his first start of the playoffs in Columbus. As Tampa Bay trailed 5-1 with under five minutes to go, Kucherov tripped Columbus defenseman Markus Nutivaara and then delivered a unsafe follow-up hit on Nutivaara, which was ruled to be boarding.

And even though the Blue Jackets ultimately collapsed last season after taking a 2-0 lead on the Washington Capitals.

Kucherov has yet to record a point in the series that changed dramatically when Columbus scored four unanswered goals en route to a 4-3 victory in Game 1.

"I just didn't think we shot the puck enough - myself included", forward Logan Couture said.

Defenseman Victor Hedman missed the last few regular season games for Tampa Bay due to an upper-body injury. It was no secret going into this series the Jackets represented a risky matchup, especially since they needed to win seven of their last eight games just to qualify for the Eastern Conference's final spot. "We have to take a page out of their book and go on the road and win a hockey game".

The Islanders have held Jake Guentzel, who led the Penguins with 40 goals during the season, and star center Sidney Crosby (35 goals, 65 assists) off the scoresheet in the first two games. "We got to win one game, and then we'll go from there". That's what we talked about without getting into the game plan stuff, I think just the mood in the room has been good. Three more goals from Matt Duchene, Riley Nash and Artemi Panarin wrapped up the second game of the playoff series 5-1.

"It's hard to win this time of year if you don't win special teams", Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said. "They're trying to do the same thing against us". "We've got to be better". Among them: Kucherov was in control of the play at all times.
