On Leon Draisaitl’s impressive run in the playoffs: “Draisaitl now has 13 goals in the postseason. The NHL record, in 100 years and change, is 19, reached first by Reggie Leach for the Philadelphia Flyers in 1976. Leach needed 16 games to get there. Draisaitl is six away in half the games.” [The Athletic ($)]
