Watch as Nikita Kucherov appears to lose control of the puck, only to fool Braden Holtby and open up the five-hole to score for the Lightning.  Kucherov fakes out Holtby with tricky phantom deke move to score his 32nd of the year.  In classy fashion Kucherov later downplayed the fantastic goal, by saying its just another goal.  Boy was it!  What a fantastic and creative move.  Just watch the kids imitate this one.
