No. 3: Chicago Blackhawks

Previous: No. 3

Record: 42-18-5 (89 points)

Having won seven games in a row, it feels like the sky is the limit right now for the Chicago Blackhawks. Stars Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are on fire, but really the entire team is coming together and everyone is contributing. And things are only looking up, as the addition of Johnny Oduya looks to further solidify an already-solid blueline. The ’Hawks held the first-place spot for one day, but are currently back in second place in the Central Division.
