1 1 Washington remains the top team in the NHL, without any doubts. The offense is on fire. The defense is lights out. And Holtby is a stud.
2 3 Eight straight wins has put the Blackhawks back into solid position. They're now back on track to defend their championship.
3 2 Dallas has taken a bit of a step back, but they continue to play with dominance.
4 13 They couldn't win 13 straight, but 12 is pretty darn nice. The Panthers are clicking on all cylinders.
5 4 Los Angeles is playing like they want their third Stanley Cup in five seasons.
6 6 The Blues have lost a lot of talent to injuries, but luckily those players are only going to miss a short bit of action.
7 12 Adding another offensive weapon is something Minnesota is itching to do.
8 8 The Wings are benefiting from Montreal's fall and have climbed up nicely in the standings.
9 11 The Rangers continue to hover in a solid spot in the Metro Division, but they just aren't playing with that spark of yesteryear.
10 22 Four straight wins has put the Coyotes into a legitimate position in the Western Conference. This is a playoff team.
11 15 Tampa Bay's finally gaining some momentum and are just one point out of 3rd in the Atlantic.
12 5 The Islanders have fallen back from their awesome play in December, but they're still a solid contender in the East.
13 10 Montreal has played a lot better, but it's going to take a big month of January to forget about a historically crappy December.
14 9 Apparently adding a top-line center in Ryan Johansen hasn't done the trick... Not yet, anyway. They'll get their acts together eventually.
15 7 The Bruins have made the Atlantic Division that much more difficult, but with Tampa waking up, they could be in tough.
16 14 Adding a top-line center could really put the Senators over the edge and into the playoffs. Could Eric Staal be a target?
17 18 The Penguins are 3-1-2 in their last 6 games and their stars are finally playing like stars.
18 19 The Sharks have won 3 straight and are sticking in the playoff race. They may end up holding on to Patrick Marleau until the summer.
19 17 The Devils are battling for a playoff spot, but with Patrik Elias out of action, they could slip away from the race.
20 20 Colorado has played a lot better of late, and they've jumped back into the playoff race.
21 16 The Flyers created some cap space, but the money saved will go towards future expenses.
22 28 The Hurricanes are playing competitively, but they're in a transition year. We might not see Eric Staal on this club for too long.
23 21 The Canucks are starting to fall back, and teams like Calgary and Anaheim are catching up. That's trouble for Vancouver.
24 25 Calgary's going to be climbing the ranks in the next few weeks. They have their sights set on the playoffs in a weak Pacific.
25 29 Anaheim's started to get its act together. Finally. We'll see if it holds up.
26 23 The Jets are started to slip and if they can't get a solid streak going soon, the playoffs will be a distant memory.
27 27 Losing JVR for the next 6-8 weeks will hurt. The Leafs have played strong, but just don't have the finish.
28 26 The Sabres are getting ready to sell some of their veteran players. They're a better team this season, but still a bottom-feeder.
29 24 Until McDavid returns to action, it's going to be a tough go in Edmonton. This team is still taking form.
30 30 They'll be selling off some of their assets in the coming weeks, as the race of Auston Matthews is on.
