1. Nikita Kucherov
This doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone. Nikita Kucherov has continued to be a dominant force on the ice after coming back from a lower-body injury in the second half of the season. With 2 goals, 6 assists, and 8 points, Kucherov has proven to be one of the best playoff performers in the last 3 postseasons. Kucherov also had the tying goal in game six to keep the Lightning’s hopes alive.
