This week’s NHL power rankings continue to see the Metropolitan and Central divisions duke it out for top-15 spots, while the Chicago Blackhawks keep battling to get back to that area

Though the Chicago Blackhawks are currently on a two-game win streak, as a team, they haven’t looked terribly impressive in the process of compiling those victories. That means not much doing for them in this week’s NHL power rankings.

Meanwhile, some teams in the Metropolitan Division and the Blackhawks’ own Central Division are putting in work, leading to some difficult decisions this week. And that’s not to mention the couple of solid teams in both the Atlantic and Pacific divisions.
