The NHL playoff race continued to be full of piping hot drama this week as players continued to put their bodies on the line to better their teams' playoff positions—none more so than Marc Methot of the Ottawa Senators.

As we enter the final eighth of the 2016-2017 NHL Regular Season, it's looking like the excitement will sustain itself right through to the 9th of April. The Metropolitan Division is as hot as a sunspot, the Alberta teams are neck and neck in the Pacific, and five Canadian clubs are currently positioned to make the post-season.
What a time to be alive.

This past Saturday, I descended into the bowels of Rogers Arena through Gate 9, a small entrance below the Georgia Viaduct reserved for staff and security. In the elevator, all of the buttons were embossed with a green and blue killer whale. As I made my way to the fourth floor of the building, to a room aptly named The Sports Bar, I was reminded ad nauseam that #WeAreAllCanucks.
I was at the Vancouver Hockey Analytics Conference and this is what I learned.

It's the NHL All-Star weekend in Los Angeles, California, which means all of us are forced to stop watching real hockey for three days while the league indulges itself with another profit-fuelled pageant.

This past Wednesday, the Hockey Jesus himself hit 100 points in just 92 games with an assist against the Florida Panthers. That pace put him fourth among active players, behind Alex Ovechkin (77 games), Sidney Crosby (80) and Evgeni Malkin (89).
After recording another assist in that game, he went on to beat the Panthers in overtime with just 2.6 seconds left, giving him 102 points in just 92 games. The OT winner was also a can't-miss goal-of-the-year candidate (and it could have been save-of-the-year material is Reimer had just held his ground).
