Who Is Hot Down The Stretch?

With only one day left in the regular season, many fans turn their attention to playoff hockey pools. One thing to look for is players who are hot at the end of the season. So, here are the top 15 scorers in the NHL since the beginning of March:

Pavel DatsyukDet1881422
Daniel AlfredssonOtt1871522
Jason SpezzaOtt1771522
Henrik SedinVan1822022

There are probably some solid playoff pool picks in there. Only two of those fifteen players will not be playing in the playoffs, Olli Jokinen of Florida and Joe Sakic of Colorado are the only ones on teams that have not qualified.

Three teams that are seen as serious Stanley Cup contenders (Anaheim, Buffalo and Nashville) lack any offensive players on this list. Is that a sign of troubles for these teams?
