Mark Scheifele has been pressing a bit to reach the 30-goal mark for the first time in his career.

He has come close lately with some posts, but he has gone goalless in four straight games. Scheifele has been great this season, while contributing 77 points in 74 games. It won't be long before he gets one goal for his 30th.

CSN Bay Area polled 21 PHWA members and the results suggest that Brent Burns is still the frontrunner for the Norris Trophy.

Among the voters, 14 said they were likely to pick Burns while another three said they were leaning towards the Sharks defenseman. Burns did endure a cold spell from early-to-mid March which put his frontrunner status in question, but he's still the probable winner of the award. He has 28 goals and 73 points in 76 games this season.

Buffalo has made the signing of C.J. Smith official.

He has agreed to a two-year, entry-level contract. Smith notched 23 goals and 51 points in 41 games for UMass-Lowell during the 2016-17 season. He will play the final five matches of the season with the Sabres.

Nick Cousins (concussion) took part in Wednesday's practice.

"I feel good," Cousins said. "I don't know if I'm 100 percent but I'm close to it. It's just a matter of getting back to game shape and getting my legs back." He's regarded as day-to-day at this point. Cousins last played on March 15.

David Perron got his 100th goal with the Blues on Wednesday night.

Perron scored a power-play goal into an empty net against Arizona to seal a 3-1 win for St. Louis. He has tallied 157 career markers in 646 games. Perron has 41 points in 76 matches this season.

Johnny Boychuk's (lower body) status for Thursday's game remains uncertain.

Boychuk seems probable, but Islanders coach Doug Weight hasn't made any officially announcements. "You want to play every game," Boychuk said, "But unfortunately I got hurt. I just want to get back and do whatever I can to help the team win. These are must-win every game. You have to lay everything out there because this is the time of year to get every point we can." Boychuk has six goals and 21 points in 59 games this season.

Patrik Berglund picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 3-1 win over Arizona.

With his 22nd marker of the season, Berglund has matched the career high he set back in 2010-11. He has 33 points in 76 games.

Brady Austin has been returned to the minors.

The Sabres will have Rasmus Ristolainen, who is done serving his suspension, back in the lineup on Sunday. Austin made his NHL debut on Mar. 20 and he skated in Buffalo's last five games.
Mar 30 - 10:46 AM

Matthew Benning (knee) is good to return on Thursday.

Benning wasn't available for Tuesday's game. "I didn’t skate Monday (practice) because the knee was so stiff. I couldn’t bend my knee past 90 (degrees). The doctors said it wasn’t a good idea to try it yesterday (game vs LA)," said Benning on Wednesday. He has three goals and 14 points in 57 games this season.
Mar 30 - 10:45 AM

Rasmus Ristolainen has finished serving his three-game suspension.

Look for him to get back in the lineup on Sunday against the New York Islanders. Ristolainen has accounted for five goals and 44 points in 74 games this season.
Mar 30 - 10:43 AM

Devan Dubnyk has posted a 10-11-2 record since Feb. 1 with a 2.80 goals-against average and a .903 save percentage.

He has gone 3-8-2 in March with a 2.94 GAA and an .889 save percentage in 14 appearances. That is why he is expected to be the backup goalie on Thursday night when recent call-up Alex Stalock starts for Minnesota. Coach Bruce Boudreau is expected to address the situation Thursday morning.
Mar 30 - 10:36 AM

Sven Andrighetto posted two assists in a 5-3 loss to Washington on Wednesday.

He has amassed 11 points in 13 games with the Avalanche since being acquired from Montreal. "It's been working out well," Andrighetto said earlier this week. "Coaches gave me an opportunity and I'm playing with great linemates. They're young and have a lot of skill. They play the same style that I like to play." He has been skating on a line with Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen.
