WATCH: Nikita Kucherov narrows Islanders lead to 4-2

Forward Nikita Kucherov brought the Tampa Bay Lightning within two goals at 7:41 of the third period. Defenseman Matt Carle made a beautiful cross-ice pass to Kucherov, who put a fairly easy shot past a red-hot Thomas Greiss. The secondary assist went to Victor Hedman. The goal was important in giving the Bolts some much-needed momentum on a night in which not much has gone their way.
