The Hart Trophy is awarded to the player judged to be the most valuable to his team.

"He's played 82 games with that target on his back", Oilers head coach Todd McLellan said last month.
We have a 2-1 lead in the series. Pittsburgh left wing Conor Sheary will also sit out Game 4 due to a concussion, according to Sullivan. "You know, you care a lot about him".

However, injury and subsequent mental health issues led Fury to twice pull-out of a scheduled rematch with Klitschko.
Sweeping the Jazz - a squad that could outscore the Golden State Warriors should it catches enough breaks - will require much more durability and focus, and there are already indications of avalanche. How the Warriors choose to counter Gobert (and, to a lesser extent, Derrick Favors ) will determine the complexion of this series. He struggled in the first two games and then missed most of game four with food poisoning, yet somehow the Jazz had the series tied at 2-2.

While around the Caps net, Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin hit him in the head. Game 4 is Wednesday night in Pittsburgh .
