After they held an eight-point advantage atop the Eastern Conference standings at the time of the NHL's pause, the Boston Bruins may be a tad irked that the NHL's top seeds will play in a round-robin format in an eventual return to play.
Draisaitl had a league-best 33 multi-point performances, including a pair of career-high, five-point outings.
But the 48 goals are enough to make Pastrnak the Bruins' first Rocket Richard victor since the award's introduction in 1999, and the first B's player to lead the league in goals since Esposito's aforementioned 1974-75 season. He finished the season with 48 goals and 67 points in 68 games.
Draisaitl is also considered the front runner for the Hart Trophy as the league's most valuable player. The highlight of Ovechkin's season was his 700th goal, which was scored on February 22 against the New Jersey Devils.
The Russian striker "Washington capitals" Alexander Ovechkin won the "Maurice Richard Trophy" as the best sniper of the regular championship of National Hockey League.
Rask and Halak combined to allow a league-low 174 goals in 70 games this season, three fewer than the Dallas Stars, who allowed 177 in 69 games. The Bruins posted a league-best 44 wins, with 22 each coming on home ice and the road.
The NBA would be smart to ax the remaining regular-season games and put this plan into motion.
The NHL announced Tuesday that the top 24 teams when play was suspended March 12 will get a shot at an expanded Stanley Cup playoff - if the season can be resumed. The NHL has not said yet how or when it will hand out the remainder of the annual awards.
