But, none of the Boston skaters are making the biggest impact. For that player, we have to look north to Edmonton and the Oilers center, Connor McDavid.

He has 48 Power Play Points and even has 3 shorthand points. He has 7 game-winning goals, including 1 overtime goal,. aAnd, he has a minimal 22 penalty minutes.

Another big storyline is Alex Ovechkin’s admission into the 800 goal club. The Great 8, who has 32 goals this year, has now scored 812 career goals. He is the third person to score 800 career goals, joining Gordie Howe and Wayne Gretzky. Ovechkin is also now the 2nd all-time goal scorer, passing Gordie Howe back in December.

Looking towards the playoffs, the Bruins will defeat the Carolina Hurricanes in 7 games to win the Eastern Conference, and the Vegas Golden Knights will defeat the Dallas Stars in the Western Conference to set up a first-time meeting between Boston and Vegas in the Stanley Cup Finals.
