SHOT

The Hockey News - - BUZZ -

KANE’S HANDS ARE AMAZ­INGLY quick in tight sit­u­a­tions and he has one of the NHL’s best back­hands. His ac­cu­racy is in­cred­i­ble and he can find open­ings from bad an­gles. Kucherov may be re­plac­ing Jac­ques Le­maire as the strong­est-shoot­ing small player I’ve ever seen. His back­hand at top speed against Washington was the best goal this sea­son. His laser-beam wris­ter against De­troit was in the Ovechkin cat­e­gory. EDGE: KUCHEROV
