We are still seeing significant movement in the power rankings. Generally this week we have seen eastern conference teams drop and western conference teams rise. This is because of a generally bad eastern conference record vs. the west this past week. Carolina lost to Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Colorado. Toronto lost to Detroit. Ottawa lost to Columbus. Anaheim beat Washington and Tampa.

The big risers on the week are Edmonton (16 to 6), Calgary (17 to 7), Minnesota (22 to 13), New Jersey (19 to 15), and Vancouver (21 to 15). Those going the other direction include the Islanders (11 to 18), Toronto (12 to 20), and Ottawa (10 to 21).
