Auston Matthews would love a chance to continue battling it out in the NHL goal race.
Before the NHL season was paused due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic, Matthews was battling with David Pastrnak and Alex Ovechkin for top spot in the league in goals. "It's pretty cool and humbling to be in the same conversation as a guy like [Ovechkin]," Matthews said. "Being in a scoring race with a guy like him, he's been a generational player and he's made a big impact beyond the game and led the way for lots of players and lots of guys. It's humbling, and hopefully we can get back to playing hockey and can compete again, that's what everyone wants to do." However, he acknowledged that there are much important things going on in the world that have to be settled first. Still, Matthews hopes to get back on the ice this year because he feels there is "unfinished business" when it comes to the regular season, the race for the playoffs and some personal goals.
