(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- Nikita Kucherov scored twice, including the game-winner in the third period, as the Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 on Monday.

Kucherov slammed the rebound of a Steven Stamkos shot past Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard 1:47 into the third to snap a 2-2 tie.

Kucherov has now scored in all six games this season, the first NHL player to do that since Keith Tkachuk of the St. Louis Blues in 2008-09. The Tampa Bay winger has seven goals in all.
