Watch: Kucherov scores 20th, 21st goals of season in win

Nikita Kucherov reaches 20 goals for the third straight season.

NHL: Los Angeles Kings at Tampa Bay Lightning Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Lightning lit up the Los Angeles Kings for five goals in a 5-0 shutout Tuesday night.

Jonathan Drouin’s unassisted goal in the first period stood as the game winner, Nikita Kucherov scored two goals, Gabriel Dumont scored his first and Braydon Coburn added one in the third. Ben Bishop earned his first shutout of the season with 28 saves.

Watch both of Kucherov’s goals below.

So how did the 23 year old sniper feel about notching his 20th goal of the season?

Reporter: The breakaway?

Kucherov: Shot it 5-hole. It was nice.
