As we approach the NHL All Star game we find many of us are aware that there are numerous teams vying for a playoff spot.
It appears most of us are aware that there are 25 teams that have a legitimate shot at filling just 16 spots.
San Jose and Boston have a huge lead over some of the field, look, there’re only six points separating 5th spot and 13th spot in the Western Conference, while Detroit. Gonna be an interesting second half to the season. It has almost become a must win for any and each team in the League. Do you know an answer to a following question. Who will make the Playoffs?
Out East we discover a log jam between the 2nd spot and the 6th spot.
Should have predicted that during training camp but the B’s just keep on piling up the wins going ‘8 2 0’ over the past ten games. Certainly, mid way through the season and we have the Bruins ranked second overall. Now let me tell you something. Iron Mike has got his crew clicking on all cylinders as we head wards the trade deadline. Having won 9 of the last 10 and the last four straight, the Flames can be dubbed the hottest team in hockey at this point. Make sure you drop a comment about it below. The Sharks are loaded with underrated talent and may lead the League in points come year end.
San Jose has lost just six times so far this year in regulation.
We see them finishing second in their Conference behind Boston this year.
Whenever winning 8 of their last ten, the Habs struggled a tad out of the gate this year but have since found their groove. Nonetheless, ovechkin seems to have something to prove this year and at this rate we should have to consider Washington, as the League’s dark horse of the season. Second only to San Jose, the Caps have posted 18 wins and only 3 losses in the apartments this year. Therefore, welcome home Shanny! Notice that the addition of Shanahan certainly won’t hurt. Then, known for their defensive style of play, the Devils have appeared to have found the back of the net more often this year.
I’m sure that the Blackhawks currently own the third best defense in the League. Add in the young snipers, Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp and this team is poised to make noise come Playoff time. Philly must come out on p of the Atlantic Division this year. Flyers have won just 4 games over their past ten but with the likes of Jeff Carter, Mike Richards and Simon Gagne, you can’t expect this slump to last for long. In any circumstances please do not be surprised to see the Rangers slip any week on the Power Rankings. Fact, the difference between NY and Philadelphia is depth. Usually, the Rangers have also won just 4 of their last ten games. Loads of us are aware that there is certainly enough talent on this team to do damage and the addition of Tim Connolly will add some scoring punch. Whenever having won 6 of their last ten, the Sabres is hitting their stride of late. Hey, they have won the last 7 of 10, including the last three games straight.
Young Mason was throwing up a brick wall.
We have the Blue Jackets ranked 12th overall.
We’ll see how long he can carry his team. What the??? Did you hear of something like this before? Half way through the season and the Ducks find themselves 20 points back of the Division leading San Jose Sharks. Known oh, how the Mighty have fallen. Accordingly an improved power play will go pretty cool thing for the Wild that they are exceptional defensively, since they sure can’t score. Wild have lit the lamp just 111 times this year. Not sure how motivated Paul Maurice is with only having an one year contract and Ron Francis sitting in the wings.
Carolina 21195″ Losers of their last four games, that said, this Carolina team is going downhill fast.
Raycroft has posted 9 wins in his first ten starts with the Avalanche.
Boston didn’t need him. He was run out of wn by Toronto but is seems Razor, has found a home in Colorado. However, now if most of the team could start performing, they may actually have a strong Playoff run. Now regarding the aforementioned fact… How the heck could this happen? Needless to say, while fighting for their Playoff lives, a team with the two best forwards in the game. Keep reading. Is the landscape in Pittsburgh about to change? Anyway, the Penguins have won just two games over the past ten outings. Canucks have lost their last four in a row and have won only three of their last ten. It’s now, Therefore if ever they needed Luongo and Sundin. Then again, winners of their last three games and having three games in hand over Carolina, I know it’s far Then the Panthers was quietly gaining ground in the Eastern Conference.
We don’t like the Oilers’ chances, with only six points separating the 4th spot and the 13th spot in the Western Conference.
Mediocre at best. We were hoping that the Stars will experience some team cohesion with Avery out of the mix. Not a lot! It’s an interesting fact that the Predators are ‘8 14 2’ on the road this year and have won just three of their past ten games. So if they need to make the Playoffs, they need to add more than Steve Sullivan to their lineup. Nevertheless, be patient Toronto Fans, it might be a couple of years before your team even makes the Playoffs.
What’s it with General Managers and the City Of Toronto? Burke’s first move as GM is to bring in Brad May. New Owners, new Coaches, new Players. What a train wreck this team is. Actually, montreal will likely be his next destination. With all that said… It looks like Vinny Lecavalier might be leaving soon. It is losers of their last three in a row. a solitary real bright spot for this team is the young Dustin Brown. I know that the Thrashers have won 2 of their last ten and hold the Leagues worst goals against with 160. You can find a lot more information about it here. Perhaps it’s time to blow it up and rebuild. Let me tell you something. Eugene must be pulling his hair out. St. I’m sure you heard about this. Does anyone ever talk about the Blues? Do people even know St. Louis has a hockey team? Can you say John Tavares? Sports Handicappers providing premium sports handicapping picks and free sports picks.
