Reaching 50

from the CP via the Ottawa Sun,
The NHL wanted more goals this season. Well, if the current scoring trend continues, at least 13 players will record 50 or more goals. "Let's hope so," Tampa star Vincent Lecavalier said recently. "It's a fact there's more goals and more opportunities to score. If it keeps up, it would be great to have 10 guys with 50 goals or 20 with 40. "It makes it better for the fans. The more goals they see, the more they enjoy the game and the more they want to see the games." If Lecavalier, Simon Gagne, Daniel Alfredsson, Jaromir Jagr, Dany Heatley, Eric Staal, Daniel Briere, Alexander Ovechkin, Markus Naslund, Brian Gionta, Martin Havlat, Ryan Smyth and Rod Brind'Amour remain on target, the NHL will have its biggest 50-goal club since a record 14 players turned the trick in the 1992-93 season.
