Kucherov does something only Lemieux, Yzerman and Tkachuk have done in the last 30 years.

Incredible accomplishment from Kucherov.

You know you've done something impressive when the only other names on the list over the past 30 years belong to Mario LemieuxSteve Yzerman and Ketih Tkachuk.

On Monday night Tampa Bay Lightning star forward Nikita Kucherov joined truly elite company when he became just the fourth player in the last three decades to score a goal in each of his team's first six games of the regular season. 

It wasn't the result of a fancy passing play, or a fluke bounce near the crease, or an opportunity created off a rebound, but rather a display of the incredible goal-scoring talent Kucherov has become known for.  Just a powerful wrist shot that beat veteran goaltender Jimmy Howard high over the glove.
