Through the first week of December Christian Folin Jersey Womens , we saw some struggling NHL teams regain much-needed momentum. On the flip side, a number of clubs have struggled following some big-time winning streaks.There's a new No. 1 this week, and we saw some changes in the top 10. Enjoy this week's power rankings as we prepare for the second week of December.31. Los Angeles Kings (11-18-1)They move back down to the 31st spot. A coaching change hasn't been done wonders, which clearly underlines that the roster just isn't good enough. Might GM Rob Blake start making some changes before the season ends?30. Chicago Blackhawks (9-16-5)advertisingThe Blackhawks have now lost six straight games and are experiencing their worst season in the Jonathan Toews era. And the front office thought that legendary head coach Joel Quenneville as the problem?29. St. Louis Blues (10-13-4)Well, it's time for some changes folks. The Blues can't score nor defend to save themselves. Expect a fire sale to take place soon. On the bright side, they'll be prime contenders for the Jack Hughes sweepstakes.28. Vancouver Canucks (12-16-3)After a promising start, the Canucks have lost 12 of their last 14 and look destined for another top draft choice. At least Elias Pettersson (25 points), and Bo Horvat (27 points), give this team a bright-looking future.advertising27. Philadelphia Flyers (12-12-3)Okay, so Chuck Fletcher is the new general manager. When do they make a necessary coaching change? And when will Fletcher find a new goalie? Unless he addresses these problems, Philly will remain mired in mediocrity.26. New Jersey Devils (10-12-5)Two more games on the dreaded California road trip, before contests against the surging Vegas Golden Knights, Tampa Bay Lightning and Toronto Maple Leafs. Another lengthy losing streak could sink their season.25. Ottawa Senators (13-14-3) Credit: Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY SportsWell, at least they're entertaining and scoring in bunches. But even Matt Duchene, Mark Stone and Thomas Chabot aren't enough to mask this team's defensive and goaltending woes.advertising24. Florida Panthers (11-11-6)Five different Panthers have at least 25 points, led by Jonathan Huberdeau's 34. You feel like Florida is bound to turn it around and get hot soon, similar to what happened last season.23. Arizona Coyotes (13-13-2)Well, they're not among the NHL's very worst teams for once. They give up on top prospect Dylan Strome and youngster Brendan Perlini, trading both to Chicago. We'll see if that changes their fortunes.22. Carolina Hurricanes (13-11-4)With the exception of Sebastian Aho (27 points) David Perron Jersey Womens , there aren't a lot of players producing on Carolina right now. Newcomer Dougie Hamilton has just 10 points this season.advertising21. New York Rangers (14-12-3)The Rangers aren't scoring much, but rookie head coach David Quinn has implemented an excellent and effective defensive system for the rebuilding Blueshirts. They're surprisingly in the playoff race, too.20. New York Islanders (14-11-3)Josh Bailey leads the team in scoring with 23. Not much star power here, but head coach Barry Trotz is squeezing out everything he can with a mediocre roster. It has them in the playoff hunt right now.19. Montreal Canadiens (14-10-5)They'll happily take a home-and-home sweep of the Ottawa Senators. But it's hard to tell if the Habs are to be taken seriously as a contender or not. Take the latter if Carey Price doesn't find his Vezina-like form soon.advertising18. Pittsburgh Penguins (12-10-6)The Penguins have been mired in mediocrity all year long. They've won their last two games, but can Sidney Crosby and the offense make up for lackluster goaltending and no secondary scoring? He's facing his biggest challenge in years.17. San Jose Sharks (15-11-5)The Sharks have lost five of their last eight games. But still, this is not a great team. Erik Karlsson was supposed to have them emerge as a Cup contender, but they're a fairly average team instead.16. Detroit Red Wings (13-13-4)Dylan Larkin is growing into a franchise superstar, and the Red Wings have jumped back into the playoff race after a miserable October.advertising15. Boston Bruins (15-10-4)The Bruins had lost three in a row and before a big home win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. David Pastrnak is having an excellent season, but the rest of the Bruins must step up if this team is to catch up in a loaded Atlantic Division.14. Minnesota Wild (15-12-2)The Wild have been sliding a bit, with losses in seven of their last 10. But with a four-game home stretch coming up, Minnesota should be able to get back on track soon. Don't read too much into their minor slump. They'll be fine.13. Edmonton Oilers (15-12-2) Credit: Perry Nelson-USA TODAY SportsThe Oilers are now 6-2-1 under new head coach Ken Hitchcock. Connor McDavid is playing even better at both ends of the ice, and Edmonton is finally playing responsible defensively. No reason to believe they can't keep this recent surge going.advertising12. Columbus Blue Jackets (16-11-2)They're not exactly the most exciting team to watch right now, but John Tortorella's system has the Jackets squeezing out tough wins. It bodes well for Columbus that Pittsburgh and both New York teams are struggling right now.11. Vegas Golden Knights (16-14-1)It's as if the Golden Knights got through the Stanley Cup hangover. For now, at least. The Golden Knights have won seven of their last eight nine games. Max Pacioretty has erased a terrible start and is up to 10 goals and 17 points on the season.10. Dallas Stars (16-10-3)Three straight wins for the Stars, who aren't so reliant on their top line this season. They're a sleeper team, and head coach Jim Montgomery deserves early consideration for the Jack Adams Award.advertising9. Buffalo Sabres (17-9-4) Credit: Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY SportsTheir 10-game winning streak ended last week, and now the Sabres have lost fie in a row. They'll be fine, but other teams got hotter while Buffalo got colder. That's why they drop big time here.8. Anaheim Ducks (15-11-5)Their five-game winning streak ended at the hands of Carolina on Friday. Can we take this ageing and flawed team seriously? The next couple of weeks will give us an indicator if they're legitimate again.7. Washington Capitals (17-9-3)Their seven-game winning streak ended last Sunday, but the Capitals are still the top team in the Metropolitan Division right now. The Caps look just as dangerous as the club that won it all last season.advertising6. Calgary Flames (19-9-2)Goalie Mike Smith has won his last five starts after a brutal start to the season. Johnny Gaudreau Jimmy Hayes Jersey Womens , Elias Lindholm, Matthew Tkachuk and Sean Monahan all have over 30 points. This is a legitimate championship contender, folks.5.聽Winnipeg Jets (17-9-2)The Jets have slowly regained their elite form after a slow start to the season. Patrik Laine is in contention to win the 'Rocket' Richard Trophy. Blake Wheeler is having another excellent season with 36 points in 27 games.4. Colorado Avalanche (17-8-5)The Avalanche just keep on surging to the top of the league standings.聽It's pretty good when two Avs (Mikko Rantanen and Nathan MacKinnon), are the league's top two scorers so far, right?advertising3. Nashville Predators (19-10-1)The Preds have been sliding just a tad, which takes them out of the first and second spots this week. They'll finish up a road trip in Calgary on Saturday before returning to the Music City for a three-game homestand.2. Toronto Maple Leafs (20-9-1)The Leafs have won five of their last six games now. They picked up road wins in Minnesota and Buffalo on Saturday and Tuesday, respectively. The scary part? They'll only get better with William Nylander finally back.1.Tampa Bay Lightning (23-7-1) Credit: Kim Klement-USA TODAY SportsThe Lightning have won five straight games now, and they snapped the Buffalo Sabres' 10-game win streak last Thursday. There's little doubting who the top team is in the Eastern Conference. Consider them the team to beat until further notice. SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) Record-setting wins don’t get much hollower than Florida’s victory Saturday night.The Panthers were eliminated from playoff contention, even after Vincent Trocheck scored late in the third period to help hold off the Buffalo Sabres 4-3 and set a franchise mark with 27 home victories.Florida’s slim playoff hopes ended when Philadelphia beat the New York Rangers 5-0 earlier in the day. The Panthers took out their frustration on the Sabres, going ahead 3-0 in the first period.The Panthers’ season ends in Boston on Sunday.”We wanted to go in tomorrow and have a chance to clinch a spot in the playoffs,” coach Bob Boughner said. ”It’s tough to have to rely on other teams. We know an hour before the game our playoff hopes were done. It was tough going into this game and getting the job done tonight.”Jonathan Huberdeau scored a power-play goal for the Panthers. Colton Sceviour had a goal and an assist and Nick Bjugstad also scored.”I think everybody in here is disappointed. The whole goal this year was to make the playoffs,” Trocheck said. ”Everybody coming into the game, we were all preparing as if it was going to be a do-or-die game. Kind of went into it the same way we would have gone into it if we were in the playoffs.”James Reimer made 38 saves in place of Roberto Luongo, who had played three games in four nights, including his 1,000th game Thursday. The Panthers also played without points leader Aleksander Barkov, who injured his shoulder late in the third period in Thursday’s game against the Bruins. Barkov will also miss Sunday’s finale.Ryan O’Reilly, Sam Reinhart and Jason Pominville scored for Buffalo. Chad Johnson allowed three goals on 12 shots in the first period and was replaced to start the second with Adam Wilcox. Wilcox finished with 14 stops in his NHL debut.”The guys did a good job battling for me Chris Bigras Jersey Womens ,” Wilcox said. ”They knew it was my debut tonight. A lot of respect for them battling for me for two periods. I just wanted to give the guys a chance to get back in the game, and they did a good job of doing that.”The Panthers were cruising but the Sabres mounted a final flurry, scoring two goals 21 seconds apart late in the third period to make it 3-2. Pominville scored on a wrist shot with 4:30 left, and Reinhart scored shortly after.”Just to be blunt and honest, that was typically what our season was,” coach Phil Housley said. ”We couldn’t come out and start on time, and then we get the urgency to push back and get back into a game and make a game of it.”Trocheck’s empty-netter with 1:23 left made it score 4-2. O’Reilly’s power-play tally with 15.8 left closed the gap to 4-3.The Panthers took a 1-0 lead when Huberdeau deflected in a shot from Trocheck during a 5-on-3 power-play at 3:04 of the first. Sceviour made it 2-0 when he deflected a shot by Frank Vatrano at 10:59. Bjugstad then slid a puck under Johnson at 13:39.NOTES: Retiring Panthers F Radim Vrbata played his last game. Vrbata played 1,057 career games, including 42 with the Panthers. ”I’m glad I got a chance to play and have my family here. My wife, my sons, they got to see me one more time.” … O’Reilly set the NHL record for faceoff wins in a single season with 1,269 – passing Rod Brind’Amour (1,268 FOW in 2005-06). ”It’s special. It’s something I take a lot of pride in,” O’Reilly said. … A moment of silence was observed before the game in memory of the lives lost in a traffic accident Friday night involving the Humboldt Broncos, a youth hockey team from Canada.UP NEXTSabres: Completed their season.Panthers: Visit Boston Bruins on Sunday.—
