Last Week: 1 Pekka Rinne returned and, after showing a bit of rust, he seems back in form. The Predators won weekend games over the New York Rangers and Florida Panthers -- both one-goal contests -- to remain the top team in the league.
Last Week: 3 The Wings are on fire with three straight wins and have won nine of 10 to keep the heat on Tampa Bay for top spot in the Atlantic and in the entire Eastern Conference.
Last Week: 4 The Lightning bounced back to beat Anaheim on Sunday after being beaten by the Ducks' neighbors from Los Angeles the day before. The Bolts are 4-1-1 in their past six to hold on to a small two-point lead over Detroit.
Last Week: 5 The Ducks are on cruise control with a 12-point lead in the Pacific Division, but they are fighting Nashville for what could be home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs.
Last Week: 2 A bit of a wobble from the Blues, who were clobbered by Columbus on Friday night and then nipped by Chicago in Sunday's nationally televised game. Brian Elliott needs his mojo back, and the long-term loss of Kevin Shattenkirk is being felt.
Last Week: 6 The Habs are right in the mix for the top spot in the Atlantic with a big win over Boston on Sunday.
Last Week: 9 The Blackhawks are getting over a little midseason slumber with two straight wins. Patrick Kane is making some Art Ross/Hart Trophy noise as he is now tied for the league lead in points with Tyler Seguin and Jakub Voracek.
Last Week: 8 The Isles won in Buffalo on Sunday and now have four in a row at home against soft touches Edmonton, Toronto and Columbus before hosting the hated Rangers.
Last Week: 7 The Bruins are back in beast mode, except of course when they play the Canadiens.
Last Week: 12 The Penguins and Islanders are doing a back-and-forth dance atop the Metropolitan Division. Pittsburgh is getting healthier but faces tough competition in Detroit, Chicago and Washington in three of their next four.
LETS GO PENS!
