Nikita Kucherov helped the Tampa Bay Lightning quickly bounce back from a rare shutout loss. Kucherov scored twice to lead the Lightning to a 3-1 victory against the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday. Tampa Bay extended its lead to four points over Boston for the top overall spot in the Eastern Conference less than 24 hours after a shutout loss at home to the Bruins. Kucherov's fourth multi-goal game of the season extended his lead to four points in the race for the Art Ross Trophy over Edmonton's Connor McDavid, who was held off the scoresheet. McDavid scored four goals against Tampa Bay earlier this season. Victor Hedman also scored for the Lightning and Stamkos added two assists.
