Tampa now is fighting from behind, with the Blue Jackets taking a commanding 2-0 series lead in Friday night's Game 2 of the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. As the Blue Jackets defenceman tried to get back on his feet, Kucherov hit him into the boards again.

"I think we should still have a sour taste in our mouth from a year ago", said winger Cam Atkinson, who scored the first goal for Columbus in the 5-1 rout of Tampa Bay on Friday. All in all on the play he was hit with tripping, boarding and a game misconduct for 17 minutes of penalties in about five seconds.

Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper says he hopes Hedman can play.

The game was already out of hand Friday, another deflating Lightning loss, when defenseman Victor Hedman approached the Columbus bench to have the final word.

"Kucherov takes advantage of this situation to deliver a unsafe hit to a player in an exposed and defenseless position", the video stated.

The Tampa Bay Lightning aren't exactly off to a good start in their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Kucherov, who led the league in scoring with 128 points (41 goals, 87 assists), is the favorite for the Hart Trophy, given to the league's MVP. All three guys finished in the top-12 of the league in points during the regular season.

The Blue Jackets, who have never won a playoff series, coughed up a 2-0 series deficit to the eventual Cup champion Washington Capitals a year ago.
