The Bruins remain the best team in the league and added two more wins to their record this week. 

  1. Tampa Bay Lightning 41-19-5, 87pts

The Bolts finally put an end to their four-game losing streak. This team is still extremely dangerous and should be considered serious contenders.

The Blues were able to win three one-goal games, which has been their specialty all season long. 

  1. Washington Capitals 40-19-6, 86pts

  1. Colorado Avalanche 39-18-7, 85pts

It is getting ugly for the Pittsburgh Penguins, who have lost six games in a row, all of which being in regulation.

The Islanders’ offensive woes continue as the Isles have not scored in 100 minutes + of game time.

The Leafs took down some solid competition this week and will look to do more damage on a feasible California weekend.

The Oilers lost two of three this week and they need to make it through their upcoming road trip alive.

The Canes have dropped three straight and have a five-game road trip ahead.

The Yotes broke even at 1-1 this week as they prepare for a three-game Western Conference road trip. 

  1. Nashville Predators 32-24-8, 72pts

The Predators won two of three this week as their minimal playoff hopes are still alive as long as they continue this level of play. 

  1. Winnipeg Jets 33-28-6, 69pts

The Jets shutout the high-scoring Capitals offense on Thursday but that was the only big highlight of a three-point week for Winnipeg.

The Blackhawks swept the Florida road trip with wins over the Lightning and Panthers this week. 

  1. New Jersey Devils 26-27-12, 64pts
