This week’s NHL power rankings see the Chicago Blackhawks moving up by virtue of their efforts prior to their ongoing bye week

Just because the Chicago Blackhawks don’t play this week until Saturday doesn’t mean we don’t continue with our NHL power rankings. And good news for the Blackhawks: not playing helped them out.

The rankings saw their usual mix and match throughout the middle portion. Funny enough, the top three and bottom three squads in the whole list are the same from last week. But many of the other clubs moved at least one spot.

This week, we have hot streaks from the Washington Capitals, New York Rangers, Chicago Blackhawks, St. Louis Blues and Boston Bruins. Meanwhile, the Detroit Red Wings and Colorado Avalanche continue to slide, while the Montreal Canadiens made a move despite leading their division.

Let’s see what this week’s NHL power rankings have in store.
