Nikita Nesterov is leading the Tampa Bay Lightning in playoff scoring.
He has collected one goal and two assists in three games. "He's definitely grown a lot, especially offensively," said defense partner Anton Stralman. "You can just see that he feels more comfortable out there, he's jumping into spaces, he's carrying the puck well and he's taking steps every game. It's fun to be out there with him and get a close up." He had seven points in 27 contests during the regular season. This is a both a good and a bad sign for the Lightning. Obviously, it's good to see the young blueliner contributing, but it also means that Tampa Bay isn't getting enough offense from its top guns. Apr 22 - 10:30 AM
