Right after getting back on the ice after surgery, I made it my “stretch goal” to join @Capitals for the end of the season. Training has been going really well and I’ve been feeling good – but my heart isn’t quite ready.

While teams like the Blackhawks, Rangers, and Coyotes can cling to razor-thin playoff hopes, most of the top four playoff positions look set. Barring some truly unlikely situations, the Predators and Stars are almost certainly going to engage in the only do-or-die, head-to-head battle for a playoff spot.

Marisa Ingemi, NHL writer: Yes. People can be real gatekeeper-y about the Hall of Fame based on their own head canon of who is good enough or whatever, but based on all the real evidence he’s a HOF caliber player. Anytime you break a Gordie Howe record that feels like an automatic, like getting 3,000 hits in baseball or something. My basis of the Hall of Fame has always been, can you tell the history of the sport, this era of the sport, without this guy? If you can’t, then they’re in.

Chandan: Penguins vs. Capitals. These two are top-five scoring offenses, with trade-deadline pickups Jeff Carter and Anthony Mantha shooting well above their season averages for the Pens and Caps, respectively. The Penguins are expecting injured forward Evgeni Malkin back any day, which could shake up the second line that's been humming as of late. The Capitals have the edge in goaltending, with Ilya Samsonov riding a four-game win streak.
