Kucherov scores 3, Lightning beat Bruins 6-3

BOSTON (AP) Nikita Kucherov helped the Tampa Bay Lightning get a big win in the playoff push.

Kucherov had his third career hat trick to lead Tampa Bay to a 6-3 victory over Boston on Thursday night, snapping the Lightning's three-game losing streak and helping them pull three points behind the Bruins for the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

"It's huge," Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin said. "We didn't have room for error tonight, but we can't be too high on ourselves."
