    Ovi usually turns it up the last half of the season.

    I hope people don’t go to sleep on Laine being in the running by the end of the season. With the way he goes on goal scoring runs, he is never out of it. And I feel one coming on really soon.....

    Seems like it's turned more into a crawl than a race recently.

    Curious to see how many actually end up with 50.

    4 goals in his last 23 games. Needs to wake up soon.

    Needs 25 goals in his last 35 games (59 goal pace) to hit 50.

    Actually, at this point it might be better to pick the field over Ovechkin, especially considering his age. A lot of those younger players may finish the season stronger.

    I would not count on this. Ovi will pick it up again.

    I don't see Point, Skinner or Landeskog as serious threats for the award. Among those with at least 29 goals, the best bet other than Ovie is McDavid IMO.

    After tonight, Ovechkin is on pace for 60 goals.

    I agree he shouldn’t lose it but he’s not being consistent at all anymore, unless it’s staying off the score sheet lol and I’m an ovi fan

    And like 14 assists and the guys
    Never had 30 sssists, and scored most of the goals on the power play, and nearly half of them in a five game span. Lol

    Speak english.

    I didn’t see tonight’s results yet just got home, long overdue.

    Now watch him go pointless against Toronto or not play that game because of all star suspension. And that’s the tram I want him to light up.



    His goal runs aren’t nearly as frequent as his goal droughts. I’d love to see him on a first line somewhere facing best defenders or not on a stacked jets power play (where most of his goals come), say if he was in buffalo without Eichel and Eichel was a jet. Oh my how much the jets would be better and how much the sabres would be worse.

    Not counting out McDavid going bonkers.

    He could score 5 in a game.

    Ovie said he’s playing tomorrow. He loves playing in Toronto.

    Only Laine does that. Just think Ovi has 6 rockets and not 1 single 5 goal game and Laine has 5 goals on 5 shots

    I stilk wouldn't do it. Ovechkin has the track record. He's going to get some much needed rest soon and will come back strong no doubt. I think he'll score 50-53 goals. That's going to be tough for anyone to beat.

    Compared to other goal-scorers I bet he's the most consistent.
