Henrik Sedin enters the last day of the regular season as the National Hockey League's leading scorer, after picking up 4 assists on Saturday. He has a 3 point lead on Alexander Ovechkin. "Ovie" plays against Boston on Sunday. He only needs to tie Sedin to win the Art Ross trophy, as he holds the tie-breaker with more goals scored.
You can bet Ovechkin will be driven to score, as he is chasing not only Henrik for the Art Ross, but battling Steven Stamkos and Sidney Crosby for the Rocket Richard Trophy as leading goal scorer.
All three of those sharp shooters play on Sunday, while Henrik's regular season concluded on Saturday night. Will Ovechkin seize the moment?
Time to put the puck on the 'Net:
- If Henrik does hold on to win the Art Ross, does that make him the favorite for the Hart Trophy too?
- Matt Hunwick was Boston's playoff hero, for taking a hooking penalty. While in the box Boston scored an unthinkable 3 shorthanded goals on the same minor penalty, a NHL first. The three goals came in 64 seconds, a new record for fastest three shorthanded tallies.
- After failing to clinch a playoff sport by earning a lone point in the last two games, Montreal finally clinches in game 82 - by losing. Only in the NHL.
- How about Evandar Kane's 1 punch knock out of Matt Cooke. Maybe that shouldn't have been a surprise - Kane was named after former heavyweight champ Evander Holyfield.
- Nice to see Mike Modano in a Minnesota North Stars once again.
- Thomas Vanek finally erupts, scoring 4 goals against the Senators. Good news for Buffalo playoff chances.
