For this week’s edition of NHL power rankings, we’re going to switch things up. Instead of a short comment on something that happened with each team in the past week, we’ll take a look at an opponent each team’s starting goaltender doesn’t want to see the rest of the regular season or in the playoffs. It’ll be fun to break the mold and see what surprises lie in store so far as struggles different goalies have against different teams.

And with that, let’s move on to this week’s ranks.
