No. 3: New York Rangers

Previous: 2nd

Record: 26-13-1

In spite of being in the same division as Columbus and Pittsburgh, the Rangers have remained solid all season long. Special teams have been a strong part of New York’s success as the Rangers are in the top 10 in both PP% and PK%. Offensively this team remains as dominant as ever. Not to mention, having two elite goaltenders is quite the luxury.
