Kucherov tips in OT winner, Lightning beat Red Wings 2-1

DETROIT (AP) Nikita Kucherov took the advice of Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper by shooting the puck more, and that has the Lightning hanging around the Eastern Conference playoff chase.

Kucherov was on the mark again Friday night, redirecting Brayden Point's pass into the Detroit Red Wings net 3:28 into overtime as the Lightning rallied for a 2-1 victory.

The win moved Tampa Bay within a point of the Boston Bruins and New York Islanders for the final Eastern Conference wild card.
