Nikita Kucherov Wins Game 3 For Lightning In Overtime (Video)

Nikita Kucherov overtime winning goal

For the second consecutive night, the NHL Playoffs delivered some overtime magic.  This time it was the New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning who needed extra time after the two teams remained deadlocked at 5-5 after 60 minutes of play.

With 10 goals being scored during regulation, another triple-overtime thriller seemed highly unlikely.  And it was, as the Lightning’s Nikita Kucherov ended it less than four minutes into overtime when he beat Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist with a wrist shot from the top of the slot.

Here’s a look at the goal that has given the Tampa Bay Lightning a 2-1 series lead over the Rangers in the Eastern Conference Finals:
