Watch: “Dmitry” Kucherov scores on his first NHL shot

  • Arun Morace

Yesterday we told you about how the Tampa Bay Lightning had called up Nikita Kucherov, one of their top prospects, in an effort to jump-start their offense. And, lo and behold, Kucherov scored a goal in his first NHL game, on his first shift, on his first shot, to give the Lightning a 1-0 lead over the Rangers (Tampa Bay would go on to win 5-0. Consider the scoring drought over).

Of course, the moment was somewhat lessened by the Tampa Bay broadcaster Rick Peckahm calling him “Dmitri” Kucherov. What, Peckham- all Russians look the same to you? (Just kidding)
