Nikita Kucherov delivers epic rant after Lightning win Stanley Cup

The Conn Smythe Trophy choice came down to Tampa Bay Lightning leading scorer Nikita Kucherov (32 points) and goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy (five shutouts).

Vasilevskiy walked away with the award Wednesday, but Kucherov was the MVP of the postgame news conferences after the Lightning won their second consecutive Stanley Cup championship.

Showing up for the Zoom session shirtless and drinking a beer, he went on a rant about Vezina Trophy voters and Montreal Canadiens fans.

Vasilevskiy is a four-time finalist for the goaltending award, but general managers gave it to the Vegas Golden Knights’ Marc-Andre Fleury this season in a close vote.
