We are about 8-9 games out from the end of the regular season. The East looks close to set barring a strong final push from the Florida Panthers.
The West is a free for all with the Calgary Flames, St. Louis Blues, Dallas Stars, LA Kings, Colorado Avalance and Anaheim Ducks all within 6 points vying for a handful of wildcard spots.
Boone Jenner (18% owned) has 4 goals, 6 points a +8, and 29 faceoffs won in the last two weeks. The Blue Jackets are fighting to hold their playoff spot.

Dillon Brooks (27% owned) has been a good late season filler lately averaging 10 points, 3 rebounds, 1.4 assists and .8 steals over the last 2 weeks. He has scored at least 15 points in each of his last 8 games to go with at least 2 three-pointers in 7 of those 8 games.

Kevin Harvick came down the straightaway trying to get some side drifting from Kyle Larson but he got too close, bumped into him and was knocked out of a chance at a fourpeat. Martin Truex Jr. came through with his first win of 2018.

The Golf gods that be must be elated with the recent win by Rory McIlroy at the Arnold Palmer Invational. This means we are two weeks out from the Masters with very strong play from Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas. Oh and Dustin Johnson is still #1 in FedEx Cup ranking and OWGR to go along with Jordan Spieth who is 4th in OWGR. I could go on about Patton Kizzire, Jon Rahm, Brendan Steele, Paul Casey etc.. but I’ll leave it at the aforementioned 5.
What. A. Shot! @McIlroyRory birdies the last to get to -10 and in prime position heading into Sunday. pic.twitter.com/8VFxGL4pz6— Golf Channel (@GolfChannel) March 17, 2018
Jose Pirela is still hitting everything in site; Miguel Andujar cooled off a bit but looks to have a starting spot come Opening Day; my attention is starting to move to Ian Happ (5Hrs, .343 avg) and Jason Kipnis (6HRs, .474 avg) as potential mid to late draft sleepers.
