"Let’s see what the doctors say": trainer "Tampa" – about the restoration of Kucherov

Coach “Tampa” Cooper believes that Kucherov will play in the fourth game with “Colorado”

MOSCOW, June 21 – Tampa Bay Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov will be able to play in the fourth game of the final series of the playoffs of the National Hockey League (NHL) against the Colorado Avalanche, according to head coach John Cooper.
On Tuesday, “Tampa” beat “Colorado” with a score of 6:2. Kucherov scored two assists. At the end of the third period, the Russian twisted his left leg after a push in the back from the Avalanche defender. The forward continued the meeting, but then left the ice.
“Now I think he can play tomorrow. But I’m not Kuch. Let’s see what the doctors and everyone else will say,” ESPN quoted Cooper as saying.
The specialist also noted that forward Braden Point is unlikely to be able to play in the fourth match of the series.
In the current Stanley Cup, Kucherov took part in 20 matches, in which he scored 26 (7 + 19) points. Point has 5 (2+3) points in nine games.
