    Nikita Kucherov Did It Again

    Nikita Kucherov beat Braden Holtby with a fake-shot goal Tuesday night in the Bolts' road victory. He beat him with this move in the All Star Game. Harder to defend than it looks, obviously, when a goalie as good as Holtby can be faked out twice by it in less than a month. This is the third time I know of that he's scored with this move.

    He did that last year on a penalty shot if my memory serves me right. At some point, somebody is going to quit going for that fake. Wonder what Kuch will do then.

    Wonder where the idea for this struck him. Creative stuff. I assume it’s a fairly uncommon occurrence?

    What is awesome is how ticked off the goalie gets. You can tell he is thinking, "I cannot believe this guy got me again with this garbage"...lol

    I haven't seen anyone else in the NHL do it. Kuch has only done this 3 times.
