Alex Ovechkin, Capitals, LW (41 goals, 36 assists, 77 points in 64 games): These next handful of games left in the regular season will put Ovechkin under the microscope to see if the 36-year-old can finish the season with 50 goals as he sits nine away from this accomplishment.
Jesper Bratt, Devils, RW (21 goals, 42 assists, 29 points in 59 games): This season it seems Bratt could be putting himself in the conversation as a late-round gem. The 23-year-old is having a career year, tied for the team lead in goals and leading the team in assists and points.
