Nikita Kucherov led the way offensively for the Lightning last week, scoring twice and recording a team-high six assists in four games. 

Kucherov factored in on all of the Lightning's goals in last week's games against St. Louis and Washington. On Wednesday vs. the Blues, Kucherov opened the scoring and added assists on goals from Anthony Cirelli and Brayden Point. Then on Friday against the Capitals, he recorded the primary assists on Tampa Bay's first two goals and the secondary helper on Alex Killorn's second period tally.
