The NHL may be on hiatus for the Olympics, but hockey remains in North America. The AHL is still playing out their schedule, even though some of their players are in the Olympics on some European teams. I last looked at the AHL standings in late January. At that time, the Manchester Monarchs (LA Kings affiliate) were pulling away from the pack in terms of points, but there were some remaining questions because they have more games played than many teams. They have further increased their points lead to three points over the second place Abbotsford Heat (Calgary Flames affiliate). Abbotsford may have two games in hand, but Manchester has a better winning percentage. In fact, Manchester leads the league with their .670 winning percentage - which is tied with the Springfield Falcons (Phoenix Coyote affiliate). Manchester is starting to pull away from the pack. This might be the point in the season when the AHL regular season champion has emerged from the pack to never look back.
