Ottawa continues to top the NHL Power Rankings but the Carolina Hurricanes are right on their tail and Dallas is not to far behind either. A Carolina win combined with an Ottawa loss might be enough to knock the Senators out of the top position which they have held from week 1.

The big gainers on the week are the Colorado Avalanche as they rose from 13th to 6th. An 8 game winning streak tends to do those things. The other big gainer is Detroit who moved from 8th to 4th. On the dropping side is the Nashville Predators who fall from 5th to 9th. It seems that every week there is a lot of movement in positions 4 through 10 as there are a lot of teams ranked fairly closely together.
