Kucherov scores twice, Lightning beat Red Wings 3-2

DETROIT (AP) Nikita Kucherov is in the middle of one of those stretches when the puck seems to do whatever he wants.

The dynamic forward scored twice Monday night to lift the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings. Kucherov barely touched the puck on the decisive goal, but he did enough to deflect it past Jimmy Howard with 18:13 remaining in the third period, and Tampa Bay held on for its fourth straight victory.

Kucherov had exactly one goal in each of Tampa Bay's first five games this season. After adding two more Monday, he is second in the league in goals, two behind Washington's Alex Ovechkin.
