4. Pittsburgh Penguins

Previous: No. 2

Record: 46-18-11 (103 points)

The injury-ravaged Penguins are on a three-game winless streak, but had previously won eight of nine and are just three points behind Washington for the lead in the Metropolitan Division. Sidney Crosby leads the NHL with 42 goals, and his one-handed tally against Buffalo last Tuesday just might be the highlight-reel goal of the year.
