Since we have the "Playoff Push" I thought I'd make a "Points Race" thread.

With a monster 4 point night Ovechkin moves to within 6 points of Geno.

106 points   Evgeni Malkin, PIT

100 points   Alexander Ovechkin, WSH

 96 points    Sidney Crosby, PIT

 89 points   Pavel Datsyuk, DET

 89 points   Zach Parise, NJ

God, I'd love to see Sid explode today and have a 4 or 5 point game.

I think today's game is going to be very defensive and very conservative though. Much like the Philadelphia game last week.

Parise has to be the most underrated player in the league.  You never hear about this guy.

Sid nets his 30th last night, now only one point awawy from 100. Parise for MVP? Get the fuck outa here! If his name wasn't on the lineup sheet, I wouldn't have known he played last night.

Unless Malkin picks it up, Ovechkin is going to leave him in the dust. Is Geno running out of gas again? He sure isn't getting any help from linemate Sykora who has been invisible for the last month or so. Datsyuk is breathing down Sid neck as well.

I'd say it has more to do with his linemates. I like Sykora, but he has been invisible for a month. And if he's not scoring goals he pretty much useless. Also, Cooke has been on his other wing at times, and while I like Cooke as a 3rd liner, he can't even bury one in an empty net.

Unless Geno beats Ovechkin by a decent number or points, Ovechkin gets the MVP. Which is bullshit, since Geno leads the league in takeaways as well.

I'm with you Merman, I think a good bit of it has to do with his Malkin's linemates and the other big reason is our lack of production on the PP.  Ovechkin get's a ton of his points on the PP.  Malkin is not getting those points right now.  Sykora can't buy a goal and I'm with you completely when it comes to Cooke.  When he was on the Gronk-TK line, he was better suited. 

While we were able to fix the first line with Guerin/Koondog, we are now lacking production from the second line.  IMO, when you have one of the league's most notorious instigators on your second line and playing with one the best players in the game, you know there are problems on that LW.  Out of pure desperation, I'm starting to wonder if we will end up seeing Satan or Pesonen back up here before all is said and done.

As far as the power play, everyone from Paul Steigerwald to Mark Madden to Bob Errey to Jay Caufield has mentioned that Sid and Geno are playing in the wrong positions on the pp. I can't believe Bylsma doesn't see it. Unless it's a case of Sid wanting to play the half wall and Bylsma giving in to his wishes above common sense. I can't see Sid being that selfish but I also can't think of any other reason not to switch those two. They need to shoot the puck and Geno shoots the puck. Sid always looks to pass first.

The good news; Geno adds 2 assists last night. The bad news; Ovechkin keeps pace with 2 of his own. Both have just 2 games remaining.

Let's hope that Geno can hold off Ovechkin.

I did see this interesting fact

Shots on Goal

Ovechkin - 511
Malkin - 283
Crosby - 231

Goals
Ovechkin - 55
Malkin - 34
Crosby - 32

Interesting....

Veteran winger Miroslav Satan was put on re-entry waivers by the Penguins yesterday and will rejoin the team if he clears by noon today.

Satan was assigned to Wilkes-Barre of the American Hockey League at the March 4 trade deadline for salary-cap purposes, but because of technical issues, there now is room for him under the team's cap for the weekend. The cap is not in play during the playoffs.

He can't appear this season, including the playoffs, for any NHL team that might claim him and is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent July 1, but someone could claim him to block the Penguins from having him for the postseason.

The Penguins signed the former New York Islander last summer with the hope he would mesh with center Sidney Crosby, but the two never developed great chemistry. Satan had 17 goals, 36 points in 65 games before being reassigned.
