This season, Nikita Kucherov has established himself as one of the best players in the NHL.  The 24-year-old leads the league in points with 78 and is just 7 points away from setting a new career high.  

He's been one of the biggest parts of Tampa Bay's success this season and if he continues to play at this level in the playoffs, the Lightning are going to be tough to beat.

Speaking of Tampa being tough to beat, Tuesday night the Capitals found that out the hard way as they lost on home ice to the Bolts 4-2. Just over midway through the 3rd period, Kucherov iced the game with a breakaway goal, but it wasn't just any breakaway goal.

Kucherov pulled off the "no move" for the third time this season and the second time against Braden Holtby.  The first time he did it to Holtby was in the All-Star game.

If you've seen both goals, though, you can tell this one is much different than the other one and after falling victim to the "no move" for a second time, Holtby recognized that fact.

There's no doubt the move was executed differently this time and because that was the case, some of Kucherov's teammates didn't think he did it intentionally.

Kucherov, on the other hand, respectfully disagreed with his teammates.

We tend to agree with Kucherov and now that Holtby has fallen victim to the move that's not actually a move twice now, you have to think there's no way he'll get fooled a third time.
