1. Rangers

After a rough stretch, the Rangers are looking like real contenders again. They have won nine straight games and are not showing a single sign of slowing down. Due to their dominance, they easily deserve the top spot in our power rankings for this week.

5. Hurricanes

Speaking of hot teams, the Hurricanes are on fire as of late. They have won four straight games and have won eight out of their last 10. While they have struggled with consistency at times, they are genuinely looking like Stanley Cup contenders again, which is bad news for the rest of the league. 

8. Maple Leafs

While this season has been a rollercoaster for the Maple Leafs, they are finally settling in and are proving that they are one of the top teams in the NHL. They have won six straight games and eight out of their last 10. Auston Matthews has been playing remarkably during this stretch, and the wins keep coming because of it. 

16. Lightning 

Things are not going well for the Lightning right now. They have lost three straight games and are now behind the Red Wings in the Atlantic Division because of it. They also got destroyed by the Panthers, losing to their division rival by a 9-2 final score. It’s just been a disastrous week for Tampa.

30. Coyotes

Big drop for the Coyotes this week. They are officially among the basement dwellers. Losing 11 straight games and showing zero signs of improvement are the reasons behind it. It has been a grueling month for Arizona, and their playoff hopes are gone because of it.
