Kucherov left Tuesday's game with a lower-body injury and did not return.

Kucherov got tangled up with Jack Johnson late in the second period and limped to the bench and down the tunnel. Kucherov did not return for the third period and head coach Jon Cooper did not have an update post-game. Consider Kucherov day-to-day with a lower-body injury until they release more information.

Kucherov (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

Kucherov was hurt Saturday and missed Monday's practice but head coach Jon Cooper listed him as a game-time decision for Tuesday's game vs. the Senators. “We got a little lucky," Cooper told reporters and Kucherov's fantasy owners feel the same way. He has four goals and 12 assists (16 points) in his last 12 games.

Kucherov (upper-body) is “doubtful” to play Wednesday vs. Buffalo.

Kucherov was hurt in Monday’s game vs. the Maple Leafs and is unlikely to play tonight. Kucherov did not take part in the morning skate and head coach Jon Cooper said that Kucherov is “up in the air but leaning toward doubtful.” Expect the newly acquired J.T. Miller to replace Kucherov in the lineup.

Kucherov (lower-body) is expected to return to the Lightning lineup on Wednesday.

Kucherov has missed the last six games with a lower-body injury, but returned to practice on Tuesday, was on the ice for Wednesday’s morning skate and is expected to play vs. the Canadiens. Kucherov is arguably the Lightning’s most important player, so his return is key. Kucherov returns with 30 points (13G / 17A) in 28 games this season.
