No. 2: New York Rangers

Last Week: 3rd

Record: 17-9-1 (35 points)

No one is scoring like the Rangers are scoring. Leading the NHL with 97 goals and a goal differential of plus-28 has the rangers tied atop the Metropolitan Division. Plus, Henrik Lundqvist is still one of the top three goalies in the NHL. Boom.
