NHL Standings:

  • In the President’s Trophy race, the Bruins are atop the Atlantic Division NHL, the Eastern Conference NHL, and the NHL overall. The Capitals have dropped, and now the Lightning are nipping at Boston’s heels in second place. (Standings have been pretty sticky, but links are NOT STATIC) NHL
  • David Pastrnak is tied with Auston Matthews as the top NHL sniper, Brad Marchand is among the assists leaders, and both are among points leaders. On the netminding side, that highly overrated bum Tuukka Rask is both the goals against average and save percentage top dog, and is among shutout leaders. Our number two is better than you- Jaroslav Halak remains among the leaders in all three categories as well. (Links are NOT STATIC) NHL
