|1||22-3-2||-||The machine just keeps on runnin’. JoeThornton is now leading the team with 32 points while Dan Boyle leads the defence with 24 points.|
|2||18-4-4||-||Seems like their determined to prove that this isn’t a fluke. They outscored their opponents 7-1 in their two games last week.|
|3||18-4-4||1||Bounced back from a so-so week by winning all three of their games. Marian Hossa now leads the team in points again with 29.|
|4||18-10-2||1||Seem to be going through a bit of a rough patch losing two of their three games last week and scoring just 6 goals in those three games.|
|5||15-7-4||-||Up until last week Dany Sabourin had done a great job filling in for the injured Marc-Andre Fleury, but he might be slowing down a bit after a not so great week.|
|6||15-6-5||2||Solid week for the Habs collecting 5 out of a possible 6 points. Saku Koivu continues to lead the team with 22 points.|
|7||15-10-3||1||Ryan Getzlaf continuing his great play now leading the Ducks with 34 points in 27 games.|
|8||15-10-3||1||The Sedin twins are keeping up with their solid play scoring a combined 53 points in 28 games.|
|9||16-10-1||2||Good week for the Flames winning two of their three games and Jarome Iginla continues to lead the team with 32 points.|
|10||15-10-3||-||An alright week for the Caps going 2-2. Bruce Boudreau splitting starts between Jose Theodore and Brent Johnson seems to be working so far.|
|11||13-7-6||2||Philly seems to be hitting their stride winning 8 of their last 11 games.|
|12||15-10-1||3||The surprising Mikko Koivu is maintaining his point per game pace with 29 in 26 games.|
|13||14-8-2||1||Devils managed to win both of their games in Overtime last week. Scott Clemmensen seems to be on a hot streak right now, only question is how long will it last?|
|14||12-6-7||-||The Blackhawks’ young players are continuing to put up good numbers and Jonathan Toews scored a highlight reel goal against Detroit on Saturday.|
|15||14-10-2||2||Won all three of their games last week and Shea Weber is continuing his impressive play with 25 points and a plus-12 rating.|
|16||13-12-3||1||Looks like the Canes will need more than just a coaching change to get things back on track.|
|17||13-11-2||4||The up and down season continues for this young team winning all three of their games last week.|
|18||12-11-3||2||Thomas Vanek is trying his best to get wins for his team as he’s leading the league with 20 goals.|
|19||11-11-4||-||Disappointing week for the Kings losing to the Leafs, Coyotes and then the Oilers in Overtime.|
|20||13-13-1||3||Good week for the Avs going 2-1-1. Surprise, surprise, Paul Stastny still leads the team with 24 points.|
|21||11-11-3||1||Brad Boyes leads the team with 25 points and Carlo Colaiacovo has looked good since coming over in a trade with the Leafs.|
|22||12-13-2||2||An okay week for the soon to be extinct Yotes going 2-2. Their captain Shane Doan leads the team with 26 points.|
|23||11-13-3||5||Kristian Huselius and Derrick Brassard are finally giving Nash some secondary scoring but so far it doesn’t seem like it’ll be enough to push them into the 8th spot in the West.|
|24||10-10-4||2||Thanks to some solid goaltending and the improved play of Dany Heatley and Jason Spezza the Sens got two big wins last week.|
|25||11-12-3||2||Good week for the Panthers going 2-1. Jay Bouwmeester has picked up his play lately and now leads the team with 16 points.|
|26||10-12-4||2||Just like the Panthers, the Stars went 2-1. Despite their bad record they’ve been getting widespread scoring as Mike Modano, Mike Ribeiro, Loui Eriksson and Brad Richards all have 20+ points.|
|27||9-12-6||5||Disappointing West Coast trip losing to the Sharks and Coyotes then come up flat against the Capitals on Saturday night.|
|28||10-14-2||3||Horrible week losing both of their games while being outscored 10-3|
|29||9-14-3||-||Ilya Kovalchuk has picked up his play of late leading the team with 26 points. It’s just too bad the rest of the team isn’t following suit.|
|30||6-12-8||-||Nothing going right for the Lightning right now. They only have one win in their last 13 games…I repeat one win in their last 13 games.|
