NHL 142 43 The Hockey News: Hart Trophy Watch 29309000 Daniel Sedin, Vancouver Canucks Daniel+Sedin%2C+Vancouver+Canucks NHL

Here are a couple of interesting stats to throw at you: 12 times this season Daniel Sedin has scored the first goal of the game and 18 times he has scored to put his team into a lead. That is tops in both categories by a considerable margin and that’s clutch scoring.

Thomas is poised to post the best save percentage since the league began keeping track of the statistic and could finish with an even better goals-against average than the 1.97 his teammate Tuukka Rask did last season.

The Lightning sniper is taking almost all of the intrigue out of the Rocket Richard Trophy race. With 41 goals so far, he’s eight ahead of the next highest scorers.

As great as Stamkos has been scoring goals, St. Louis has been an absolute wizard setting them up and continues to defy age by being an outstanding player in all zones of the ice.

Don’t laugh. If the New Jersey Devils somehow find a way to rise from the dead and make the playoffs, which is still a long shot, the $100 million man would have to receive some consideration for the Hart.

"Captain Serious" has led the Chicago Blackhawks' resurgence both on and off the ice with some fine offensive play and inspiring words for his teammates. No player has been as hot since the all-star break as Toews, who has eight goals and 23 points in 14 games.

His 25 goals are waaaay off his normal output, but Ovechkin is coming on for the surging Capitals and his spectacular overtime-winner against the New York Islanders Tuesday night was a clear sign he still has it.

Keith who? If you’re a Phoenix Coyotes fan, and even if you’re not, you’re well aware of the fact Yandle leads all NHL defensemen and all Coyotes in scoring this season.

Thursday’s shutout against the Panthers was Price’s seventh of the season, putting him one of Henrik Lundqvist’s pace. He’s among the leader in wins, GAA and SP, keeping the Habs within striking distance of playoff home-ice advantage.
