1. Ovechkin has ovetaken Kovalchuk as the NHL's leader in goals, while Vincent Lecavalier has taken the number one spot in points. Kovy needs to reclaim his number one spot honor in both of those categories.
2. The Carolina Hurricanes won last night. The Thrashers need some points, and we can't count on the Hurricanes to lose. We need victory!
3. To make Atlanta proud and confident to be the host for the All-Star Game. Come on, guys, Atlanta's hosting the event and Kovy, Hossa, and Enstrom are all participating in one way or another. Wouldn't it be nice if we could go into the All-Star weekend with a division lead?
