The Lightning Are Coming Unglued As Nikita Kucherov Sent Off With A Questionable Hit

WOW. There are not a lot of people who saw this coming. Columbus has absolutely ransacked Tampa Bay since being down 3-0 in the first of Game 1.

The pressure is definitely getting to them as Nikita Kucherov just DUMMIED Markus Nutivaara’s head into the boards while he was already down. Nazem Kadri was suspended before for a very similar hit and this could be a HUGE hit if the Art Ross winner and 128 point RW is suspended for any length of time.

Here is the Kadri hit for comparison

P.S. I would advise a different defensive strategy against Artemi Panarin from now on if I was the Lightning.
