Kucherov records hat trick in 2nd

Nikita Kucherov snipes from the circle and beats Mike Condon for a power-play goal, recording a natural hat trick in the 2nd period.

"When [Kucherov] has that shooter's mentality with the gift that he has to put the puck in the back of the net, this is what happens," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said.

"Everybody understands, [trades] is part of the business. From us, we just need to continue playing our game. We have a general manager to take care of it, and our goal is just play hockey." said Kucherov after the game.
