SHOOTOUTS

The Hockey News - - BUZZ -

DIF­FER­ENT AP­PROACHES, SIM­I­LAR re­sults. In the past four sea­sons, Kane has scored nine shootout goals in 30 at­tempts and Kucherov has scored seven in 24 at­tempts. In most of his shootouts, Kucherov takes a text­book ap­proach, with the puck in front of him like Crosby, ready to shoot quickly or make a move to ei­ther side de­pend­ing on the re­ac­tion of the goalie. Kane is to­tally un­pre­dictable. He can come in from any an­gle and can ei­ther ac­cel­er­ate or slam on the brakes. You can­not guess how he will try to score. EDGE: NEI­THER
