Fantasy Impact:

Nikita Kucherov will not be available to lace up the skates this Sunday due to an illegal boarding penalty on Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Markus Nutivaara in Game Two. This is a major blow to the Tampa Bay Lightning as they are already down 2-0 in a best of seven series with Columbus. It will be interesting to see how the team responds to all this adversity facing them for the remainder of this series.
