from Scott Cullen of TSN,
#1 Chicago Blackhawks- Carrying on, despite missing two of their most prolific goal-scorers, the Blackhawks get their offence from other source, like rookie LW Brandon Saad, who now has 17 points in his last 16 games.
Key Injuries: LW Patrick Sharp (shoulder), RW Marian Hossa (upper body), C Dave Bolland (foot).
#2 Boston Bruins- Can the acquisition of RW Jaromir Jagr jumpstart the Bruins' 24th-ranked power play that is 1-for-16 (6.3%) in the last eight games? 2-4-2 in those eight games, it's probably a good time to shake things up.
Key Injuries: None.
#3 Montreal Canadiens- I wondered on Twitter about whether Habs D P.K. Subban would be a Norris Trophy contender, with Kris Letang and Erik Karlsson injured. He's offensively-oriented and doesn't face the toughest competition, but 28 points and plus-11 in 29 games puts him in the discussion.
Key Injuries: D Raphael Diaz (concussion), LW Rene Bourque (concussion).
