also worth noting: ilya kovalchuk leads the goal-scoring race with 32 goals and is a mere 2 points behind jaromir jagr in the total points race with 63. marc savard, our dear canadian thrasher who was NOT picked to be on the olympic team, is now third in the total points race with 61 points and is tied for second with peter forsberg in the assists race with 42 assists.
