No. 2: Pittsburgh Penguins

Previous: 3rd

Record: 25-8-5

The quest for back-to-back Cups for the Pens’ is sure looking like a strong possibility. There aren’t many teams in the league that possess a single player with points in the 40s. Well, Pittsburgh has two in Sidney Crosby (42) and Evgeni Malkin (43). Currently riding a four-game win streak, the Penguins will look to extend the success at home against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
