Best he said it better than all of us: Tampa Bay Lightning’s drunk Nikita Kucherov

Tampa Bay Lightning’s drunk Nikita Kucherov

When the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Montreal Canadiens to clinch the Stanley Cup, one man spoke the words we were all feeling in our hearts. In a postgame presser, a fully-bearded and half naked Nikita Kucherov slammed a beer and had some choice words for lame Montreal fans. At one point, Kucherov chugged a Bud Light and then went all in on how Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy should’ve won the Vezina Trophy. But the winger really his his stride when he touched on the team’s one series loss up North. “The fans in Montreal, come on,” said Kucherov. “They acted like they won the Stanley Cup, last game. You kidding me? You kidding me? They’re final was last series, OK.” @nikitakucherov86 on Instagram
