As we approach the NHL All Star game we find for the most part there’re numerous teams vying for a playoff spot.
Could be an interesting second half to the season.

Second only to San Jose, the Caps have posted 18 wins and only 3 losses indoors this year.
Welcome home Shanny!
Actually the addition of Shanahan certainly won’t hurt. Known for their defensive style of play, the Devils have appeared to have found the back of the net more often this year. Usually, the Blackhawks currently own the third best defense in the League. Eventually, add in the young snipers, Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp and this team is poised to make noise come Playoff time.
