Members of the Tampa Bay Lightning weren’t on the winning team in Sunday’s NHL all-star game, but they still made an impression.
Forward Nikita Kucherov scored twice and defenseman Victor Hedman scored once in the Atlantic Division’s 10-6 loss to the Metro division Sunday afternoon.
Kucherov scored the second and fifth goals for the Atlantic, and he had assists on two other goals, including one by Hedman that tied the game at 2-2. Kucherov’s second goal brought the Atlantic back to within 6-5 in the loss.
The Metro beat the Pacific 4-3 in the final on a goal by Wayne Simonds, who was named the MVP.
