NEWARK, N.J. -- Right wing Nikita Kucherov will be in the lineup against the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center on Friday, and he was looking forward to returning to the "Triplets" line if given the chance alongside Ondrej Palat and Tyler Johnson.
Kucherov, who missed two games with a lower-body injury, skated with Palat and Johnson during practice Wednesday and Thursday. Kucherov was one of 12 players participating in an optional morning skate on Friday.
