Rank Rank Last Week Team Record Last 10 The Skinny
1 1 4-1-1 4-1-1 Is Mike Sullivan the best coach in hockey right now? Or could anyone could a team with Crosby & Co.? Discuss amongst yourselves.
2 7 5-1-0 5-1-0 Big jump for the Bruins this week, fueled by three wins last week.
3 2 4-1-1 4-1-1 This is supposed to be the step-back season for the the Panthers? Sure doesn't appear that way!
4 9 4-1-1 4-1-1 Dallas fans enjoying the usual Pete DeBoer first season honeymoon, but Jake Oettinger is a big reason.
5 5 4-1-0 4-1-0 A hot start for the Flames, yet somehow Darrly Sutter is still sour and unhappy.
6 4 4-1-1 4-1-1 Canes slip two spots following losses to Edmonton and Calgary.
7 3 5-2-0 5-2-0 Congrats to Phil Kessle for the Iron Man record. Now, how about scoring a goal?
8 21 4-1-0 4-1-0 Are Buffalo fans being teased again by another good start?
9 6 3-2-1 3-2-1 Yankees: Out. Mets: Out. Islanders: Average. Jets and Giants: Overacheiving. The Big Apple is there for the taking, Rangers!!
10 12 3-1-0 3-1-0 Blues climbing by beating teams they should be beating.
11 10 4-3-0 4-3-0 Listen up, Leaf fans: It's going to be okay. It's better to struggle in Oct than in April or May.
12 14 3-0-2 3-0-2 Wings benefit from underachievers around them.
13 8 3-2-1 3-2-1 Gabriel Landeskog's knee injury means the Central Division is wide open
14 11 3-3-0 3-3-0 Lots of miles and wear on this roster, which makes their average start understandable. The Lightning know the only games that really matter are in April onwards. Just get into the dance.
15 27 4-2-0 4-2-0 Sens are showing flashes of becoming a good team. Is this the Claude Giroux effect, or are the youth learning on the fly?
16 18 4-3-0 4-3-0 Suddenly looking too old and too slow. Can Ovi keep up the pace if the rest of the team falls back?
17 13 3-3-0 3-3-0 Not only is goaltending still a problem, they're not scoring
18 20 4-2-0 4-2-0 Good wee for the Flyers with wins over Tampa and Nashville, which bookened a close loss to Florida.
19 25 3-3-0 3-3-0 Carey Price says he doesn't plan on retiring. The Habs are surprisingly fun, but probably a year away from the playoff bubble. Is it possible these two things line up?
20 16 3-3-0 3-3-0 How far can one line and a great goalie carry you? So far, it appears the answer is the middle of the pack. Jets need some depth if they hope to compete.
21 19 3-4-0 3-4-0 Wins over Detroit and Nashville overshadowed by losses to Pittsburgh and Washington.
22 29 3-2-0 3-2-0 Only one game for Chicago last week, but they continue to counter the tanking accusations.
23 30 3-3-0 3-3-0 Have years and years of drafting either first ovrerall or close to it, and snagging topnotch free agents like Dougie Hamilton, finally nudged this team out of the cellar?
24 15 2-4-1 2-4-1 This team hasn't beaten anyone since taking two from San Jose in Prague. The slide continues.
25 28 3-4-0 3-4-0 Two wins over cupcakes and a loss to the top ranked team help the Jackets climb two spots.
26 26 2-3-2 2-3-2 Three losses for the Krak but they hold their spot at #26.
27 17 2-4-0 2-4-0 The Isles beat San Jose then show their real colors against New Jersey and Tampa.
28 22 1-3-1 1-3-1 Can Fleury make the Wild a surprise like he did in Vegas?
29 23 1-4-1 1-4-1 Three losses helpng shape the Pacific Division basement.
30 31 2-6-0 2-6-0 Sharks have played almost 1/10th of the regular season so far. Both goalies have looked good in their most recent outings in Philadelphia and New Jersey. Sharks have won two of thier past three but still struggle to score.
31 24 0-5-2 0-5-2 Bruce Boudreau a surprise favorite in the first-coach-to-be-fired pool
32 32 1-4-0 1-4-0 The Coyotes allow 5.2 goals per game, which tracks out to 426 for a full season. That would be the 2nd worst mark of all time. Who says there's nothing to play for in Arizona?!
