No. 3:  Pittsburgh Penguins

Previous:  3rd

Season Record:  19-7-3

This squad is doing everything in its power to prove that last year wasn’t a fluke.  The reigning Stanley Cup champions have been dominant this year.  Last night’s 7-0 win over the Arizona Coyotes with their sixth win in a row.

And the Pens are scoring goals like there’s not tomorrow.  Captain Sydney Crosby leads the team and the league with 21 goals.
