Nikita Kucherov scored a pair of goals in Game 1 on Sunday night against the Florida Panthers.
Kucherov was making his season debut after recovering from hip surgery. Rust was a concern, but there was certainly no rust here. He also added an assist on Brayden Point's power-play goal to tie things up in the third period. If you had the foresight to add him in a postseason fantasy pool or DFS for Game 1, kudos. He led the team with five shots on goal, while adding a blocked shot, a minor penalty and a hit in his 19:21 of ice time across 25 shifts. He'll look to keep it cooking in Wednesday's Game 2 back in South Florida. Yesterday 11:23 pm (EST)
