TSN Power Rankings

from Scott Cullen of TSN,

This Week 1, Last Week 1, Pittsburgh Penguins 47-22-6

Thumped in Ottawa Saturday night for their only regulation loss in the last 16 games, losing 8-4 with rookie Brad Thiessen between the pipes. It was the fifth time all season that the Penguins have lost by three or more goals, while each of their last six wins have been by three-goal margins.
Key Injuries: None.

This Week 2, Last Week 3, St. Louis Blues 47-20-9

Getting Alex Steen back in the lineup helps offset the loss of Andy McDonald and the Blues have the luxury of leaning on Brian Elliott when Jaroslav Halak needs a break. Elliott has allowed four goals in his last five starts, with back-to-back shutouts in his last two.
Key Injuries: LW Andy McDonald (shoulder), D Roman Polak (knee).

This Week 3, Last Week 5, Nashville Predators 44-24-8

The addition of Alexander Radulov has provided an offensive boost—not a surprise, but somewhat surprising that he’s taken such a big role right away, scoring three points in three games and playing more than 20 minutes in each of the last two games.
Key Injuries: D Roman Josi (upper body).

...but the Wings aren’t nearly as formidable when they are continually missing significant players due to injury.

No duh, this can be said about anyone except for the Pens however they play in the East so that’s not quite as impressive.

“power rankings or power bottom rankings?”

That insult was delivered solely for the most insecure fanbase in the NHL that just can’t be happy with their team’s success.
