With Malone hurt, Lightning call up Kucherov

The Tampa Bay Lightning called up Nikita Kucherov and Dmitry Karobov on Sunday thanks in part to injuries to Ryan Malone and Radko Gudas. Kucherov is the guy to watch. The 2011 second-rounder (58th overall) has impressed so far, including his first season in the AHL. The 20-year-old already has 24 points in 17 games with Syracuse Crunch, including 13 goals. (The Lightning tend...

AHL Scoring Race

Betting Musings At The 2013 WJC!

(Nikita Kucherov scores the first goal for Russia but goals were hard to come by for the medal favorites today). It was not the way Russia had drawn it up needless to say but they did win today over Slovakia 3-2. Russia was favored by several goals and could only muster a one goal win. Needless to say, it was not the desired result for a team that looked like a middle of the road...
