1. You have to Live with Kucherov

Nikita Kucherov is undoubtedly an incredible player. He can also be an incredibly frustrating player as well. Between careless giveaways and ill-advised penalties, he can seem like a complete liability at times. Ultimately, you must take the good with the bad with him.

For every mistake there may be, there will be a incredible play right after to make you forget. Nobody will care at all especially after assists like he had on Palat’s game winner late in the third period. Just another example of the ability of Kucherov to distribute the puck like few can.

To top it off, Kucherov had a three-point outing in game three and has factored in on the scoring of each of the last five Lightning goals in the series.
