Scott Cullen of TSN has come out with his weekly rankings and I’ve list 8-10,
Detroit Red Wings This Week 8, Last Week 13
The strong play of G Jimmy Howard (1.85 GAA, .930 SV%), following a medicore 2010-2011 season, has been encouraging and allowed the Wings to get by while they wait for more typical production from stars like C Pavel Datsyuk and LW Henrik Zetterberg.
Key Injuries: D Ian White (cheek).
Chicago Blackhawks This Week 9, Last Week 5
Had won four straight, by a combined 13-goal margin, before the wheels fell off in Alberta, losing by a cumulative 14-4 count in Calgary and Edmonton. A couple days in Vegas should be just what they need before three more road games in California.
Key Injuries: D Brent Seabrook (lower body).
Minnesota Wild This Week 10, Last Week 17
It would be one thing to say the Wild are defensive, but they’re not really, ranking 24th in the league with 31.6 shots allowed per game, yet their goaltending remains exceptional, stopping an otherworldly 93.8% of opposition shots on goal.
Key Injuries: D Greg Zanon (groin), RW Guillaume Latendrese (concussion), D Marco Scandella (concussion).
the rest of the teams…
