Joe Pavelski has 58 goals in his last 118 contests, putting him behind only Tyler Seguin (62) and Alex Ovechkin (67). Pavelski's rise to the top hasn't been as rapid as it was for the two players he's chasing, but the 30-year-old has nevertheless established himself as one of the league's elite. "You hope it’s the norm," Pavelski said. "That's what you strive for and you hope you can surpass it. You want to keep getting better and keep learning, and finishing your chances. But, obviously it's ultimately about helping the team win. Scoring goals is part of that, but you've got to do all the other things."
