However, it didn't exactly seem that way Monday night when Tampa forward Nikita Kucherov left the game with an upper-body injury in the first period and did not return.

Luckily enough, the injury to the NHL's top point getter is not believed to be serious, and he could even be ready for the Lightning's next game against the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Joe Smith.

Kucherov is having an All-Star season in which he currently paces the league in points with 82.
