MOSCOW, June 21 – The head coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning, John Cooper, after winning the third match of the final series of the NHL playoffs, said that he still has no information about the condition of Russian striker Nikita Kucherov, who was injured at the end of the meeting.

“Kucherov’s injury? You are asking something that everyone already knows about. Hockey is a contact game. Professionals know what they are doing. Smart and reasonable players are aware of their actions. You yourself have seen everything,” Sportsnet quotes Cooper.
The specialist also added that he does not yet have information about the state of Kucherov.
Lightning defenseman Viktor Hedman called Teyvz’s game against the Russian hockey player dangerous. “Let’s see if there will be some sort of punishment. I suspect he won’t get anything for this,” Hedman said.
