Josh Anderson shoots one past Jack Campbell as the Canadiens double up the Maple Leafs 4-2.Washington Capitals
The rest of the field is anyone's guess. One of our voters lobbied for Rod Brind'Amour of the Carolina Hurricanes. Another liked Mike Sullivan of the Pittsburgh Penguins. We imagine that Minnesota Wild coach Dean Evason, Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice and Colorado Avalanche coach Jared Bednar will get some attention. But if the Maple Leafs win the North, and remain in the top 10 defensively, it's easy to see Keefe getting some deserved credit. Trotz, meanwhile, has two Jack Adams wins, including with the Islanders in 2018-19. New York is vying for a division title. Their coach is their MVP.

Ultimately I think how the Caps played against the Islanders over the past week will do more to determine what moves Washington general manager Brian MacLellan decides to make at the trade deadline and not Wednesday's trade.
Eight Canucks games have been postponed since March 31 as a COVID-19 outbreak spread through the team. In total, 25 players and staff members tested positive, with many symptomatic. The team said a variant of the virus was at play.Carolina Hurricanes
The Penguins continue to be without injured forwards Teddy Blueger, Evgeni Malkin, Kasperi Kapanen and Brandon Tanev. Coach Mike Sullivan said F Anthony Angelo remained on the taxi squad because he did not accompany the team to New York for the four games against the Rangers and New Jersey Devils due to an upper body injury.San Jose Sharks
The knock on Matthews was that he missed time to injury and he wasn't leading his team in scoring. Well, he missed only three games, he has moved within a point of Mitchell Marner's 47 points and has the Leafs' leading scorer beat in points per game (1.28), which is really where the focus should be in this janky season. Otherwise, Matthews is having an incredible goal-scoring season, with 27 in 36 games, nine of them qualifying as game-winning goals, the highest total in the NHL this season.
Trying to balance winning in 2021 while not gutting an already bare cupboard of assets wasn't going to be an easy task for the Bruins entering the trade deadline, but they've done a nice job of it over the last 24 hours.Colorado Avalanche
