No. 6:  Columbus Blue Jackets

Previous:  6th

Season Record:  17-5-4

The Jackets are continuing to roll as they beat the Islanders 6-2 on Saturday, for their sixth consecutive win.  There are several players contributing to this success, but this week Sam Gagner is at the forefront of it all.

Gagner was named the NHL’s third star of the week, scoring three goals and three assists for six points to help the Jackets win all three of their contests last week.
