Alex Ovechkin netted his 35th goal of the season on Monday.

Ovechkin's been hot lately with three goals and eight points in his last five games. He also is just seven goals shy from the 600-mark in his career.

Erik Gudbranson is hoping to sign an extension with the Vancouver Canucks.

Gudbranson can become an unrestricted free agent this summer and there's a chance that the Canucks will chose to trade him before the deadline. If they believe that they can re-sign him though, then that might be the more desirable route. Given that Gudbranson is still just 26-years-old, he could be part of the Canucks' long-term solution. "I have a mindset that I want to be here and getting something done soon. It certainly has been on my mind the last month," Gudbranson said. "I think I deserve some security and I’d like a couple of years to be part of a group that’s growing."

It wouldn't be surprising if Brent Burns (undisclosed) isn't available for Tuesday's game.

While that hasn't been confirmed, the Sharks did recall Paul Martin from the AHL on Monday. That leaves the Sharks with eight blueliners on their roster and it seems unlikely that San Jose would have summoned the veteran defenseman if they didn't anticipate Burns being unavailable. Burns left Sunday's game in the third period due to the injury.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are reportedly interested in acquiring Michael Grabner from the New York Rangers.

The Penguins would seem to be a good fit for Grabner given his speed and scoring ability. His $1.65 million annual cap hit is also light enough that the Penguins shouldn't have an issue fitting him in. It might be that the Rangers will be reluctant to trade within their division, but given that the Rangers are now focused on the future, the return is expected to be their biggest concern. So at the end of the day, the big question is likely if the Penguins will be the top bidder for his services or not. If they are then it will be pretty exciting to see which line he ends up on.

Riley Sheahan has become a key part of the Penguins' penalty kill.

Pittsburgh has the top PK in the NHL dating back to Dec. 1 and Sheahan is the team's leader in shorthanded ice time. He's also been being excelling on the draw with a 55.7% success rate since joining the Penguins and has done well centering the third line. All-in-all, the Penguins decision to acquire Sheahan from Detroit back in November has worked out well for the club. It'll be interesting to see how the Penguins' depth charts work out if they do acquire another bottom-six center before the deadline as seems to be their goal. Penguins GM Jim Rutherford suggested that Sheahan might end up being tried on the wing, which is a role he's had before, or it might be that Sheahan even plays on the fourth line.

Michal Neuvirth's lower-body injury will sideline him for the "long term," per Flyers GM Ron Hextall.

Neuvirth left Sunday's game due to the injury. With Brian Elliott also sidelined, the Flyers made the decision to acquire goaltender Petr Mrazek from Detroit on Monday. Given that we now know that both Neuvirth and Elliott won't be back for weeks, if at all for the rest of the regular season, it seems fair to assume that the Flyers will be leaning on Mrazek for a while.

The Flyers could end up surrendering as much as a second-round pick and a third rounder in the Petr Mrazek trade.

The Flyers have exchanged a conditional 2018 fourth-round pick and conditional 2019 third-round selection in order to get Mrazek from Detroit. All it would take for the fourth rounder to become a third-round pick is for Mrazek to win five games, which seems likely given that Brian Elliott and Michal Neuvirth are currently sidelined. For the 2018 third rounder to become a second-round selection, the Flyers would need to get all the way to the Eastern Conference Final with Mrazek winning at least six playoff games, which would be a surprising development. As for the 2019 third-rounder, the Red Wings would get that if Mrazek re-signs with Philadelphia. Mrazek is set to become a restricted free agent this summer, so the Flyers are in a position to re-sign him if they want, but they might pass on the opportunity given that Elliott and Neuvirth are both locked up through the 2018-19 campaign.

Tanner Fritz scored his first career NHL goal on Monday.

Fritz was playing in his 14th career game. The 26-year-old did excel offensively at the AHL level, but we don't anticipate him making a big impact in the NHL.
