Andrew Ladd led the NHL with eight points in three games to help the Winnipeg Jets pick up five out of a possible six points in their push for a playoff berth. Ladd is having a career year in this shortened season as he is averaging over a point per game for the first time in his career.
Richards led the NHL with four goals and tied for second with seven points in four games as the Rangers earned six out of a possible eight points to remain in the top eight in the Eastern Conference. After having a slow start to the season Richards has really picked up his game as of late – it couldn’t have come at a better time for the Rangers.
Couture had 3 goals and 3 assists, including two game-winning goals, in four games to help put the Sharks on the verge of clinching their ninth consecutive playoff berth. Couture is now looking like the Sharks best player and is one of the league’s most underrated top young stars.
