14. Washington Capitals 16-10-6: The Caps have won two in a row and are 6-2-2 in their last ten games. This is the Hyde portion of the Jekyll and Hyde team.

13. Vancouver Canucks 19-11-2: The Canucks are 4-5-1 in their last ten games. They also had a big scare when forward Jannik Hansen collapsed on the bench during the second period. He appears to be fine.

12. Toronto Maple Leafs 20-11-4: The Leafs were playing great hockey last week. This week they have fallen on hard times, they are 3-5-2 in their last ten games and lost their last game this week. With Mike Babcock not resigning with the Wings, is he eyeing the Leafs as his next landing spot?

11. Montreal Canadiens 22-11-2: The Habs are 5-4-1 in their last ten games and continue to sit atop the Atlantic Division. The Habs completed their most recent homestand 4-1-0 after losing six of their previous seven games.

10. Tampa Bay Lightning 20-11-4: Tampa Bay is 3-5-2 in their last ten games. On their most recent road trip they are 1-3-1. Their most recent loss was to the red hot New York Islanders. Andrey Vasileskiy has made his three straight start due to the injury to Ben Bishop.
