John Z. put a stop to the Pirates run in a big way by winning the 1st and 2nd lines and in the middle of the 3rd line on their way to a massive 33.5 points on the week and moving up to 2nd in the standings but more importantly with Coops Crew sputtering last week are now only 3.5 points out of the lead. Leading the way was their Colorado combo of Landeskog and McKinnon both having 7 points on the first line and their Toronto combo of Matthews and Marner with 5 each on the 2nd line.
Second place went to the Ice Hawks (Charlie F.) for the second week in a row. They had another strong week posting 25.67 points on the power of second place finish on the 1st and 2nd lines and being 3rd place on the 3rd line. They remain in 5th place but are a mere one point out of 4th place and closing in on 3rd place
The Pirates continue their charge by gobbling up 19.67 points on the week. They finised in the middle of the pack on all three lines to move closer to 3rd place in the standings.
Once again the top three teams gobbled up most of the points. The rest of the top 6 were Ted P. with 17.8 points as they try to keep within reach of a top 5 spot. Their Boston foresome had a big game on Saturday posting 11 points to steal the 3rd line win. Tim H. had a second place finish on the 3rd line but was only able to muster 10.75 points. Jason with 7.5 (again not worth mentioning) and fell to 3rd place in the standings and have the Pirates and the Ice Hawks nipping on their heels.
The Canadian division Covid-19 big news this week was the Vancouver squad landing ... 16 players on the Covid list. Their games have been suspended til Apr 8th but it is quite likely that they will be shut down for a couple of weeks. Gives Coops Crew's Petterson some time to heal and hopefully he will be back for the rescheduled games. JT Miller sure is missing him as he has been cold as ice lately. Once again, Edmonton will have more games rescheduled because of this. Chances are they will have 5 games a week for three weeks in a row if this keeps up.
