Kucherov to have hearing for boarding call

Nikita Kucherov suspended 1 game for boarding Markus Nutivaara 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Nikita Kucherov suspended for one game after 'dangerous' hit in Game 2

Superstar forward Nikita Kucherov has been suspended for Game 3 of the Tampa Bay Lightning's first-round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Kucherov has yet to record a point in the series that changed dramatically when Columbus scored four unanswered goals en route to a 4-3 victory in Game 1.

"It's just unfortunate it's at the expense of Kuch", he said.

Islanders at Penguins, New York leads series 2-0 (noon EDT, NBC).

Callahan was used sparingly by the Lightning over the second half of the regular season, but when he was inserted into the lineup, he generally provided a spark and brought some scoring punch to the fourth line.

The Blue Jackets are facing top-seeded Tampa Bay Lightning, the team that won the Presidents' Trophy for best overall record in the National Hockey League, ending the regular season 62-16.

He's also a fierce competitor, a heart and soul guy who leaves everything out on the ice. "We have to have good communication and be each others' eyes out there, help us play a little bit faster and anticipate our next play".

The Penguins will look to regroup as they head home for the next two games. "We got to win one game, and then we'll go from there". It's a confident group in here.

On Wednesday, Columbus took the first win of the series.

Getting Tampa Bay at this low of a price is tempting considering that the Lightning won 30 games on the road in the regular season and now have their backs against the wall heading on the road for game three.

"Every time in the playoffs, the room gets less and less out there", Lightning defenseman Ryan McDonagh said.

But Victor Hedman didn't want anyone on the Blue Jackets to get too comfortable taking a two-game edge.

"He never gives up. He brings all of that to the table".

Jordan Binnington made 26 saves for St. Louis, becoming the second goalie in franchise history to win his first two playoff games. The Bolts have maintained they trail in the series not so much because of what Columbus is doing to them but more what they're doing to themselves.

"We're in a hole, we're in a tough position, but we are not going to quit", Lightning center Steven Stamkos said. We just have to focus on Game 3. "They're trying to do the same thing against us". "We've got to kind of relax a bit, get back to our system, get back to playing the right way and go from there".

Cooper says he hopes Hedman can play. It'll be a game-time decision whether he can play in Game 3.
