14. Vancouver Canucks 20-11-2: The Canucks finally got off their five game losing streak and have won two in a row. The Canucks faithful is still worried about the team and should be. Ryan Miller can get cold and in a hurry just ask the St. Louis Blues.

13. Winnipeg Jets 19-10-7: The Jets are riding the play the great play of their goal tending. Coach Paul Maurice has alternated goalies for the last 14 games. Ondrej Pavelec is 3-1-3 during his time in net in the last 14. Michael Hutchinson is 5-1-1 in in his starts.

12. San Jose Sharks 19-12-5: Matthew Nieto is doing everything that Sharks would like from him. This is the new money ball version of the Sharks. The Sharks hopefully will go far in the playoffs.

11. Los Angles Kings 18-11-7: The Kings are starting to find their groove on the power play. Anze Kopitar is starting to find his touch on the PP and this will help the offensively challenged La Kings. Did you know the Kings did not win their division during the past two Stanley Cup championship seasons?
