20.  Carolina Hurricanes

Previous: No. 24

The Canes have won three games in a row and have been led by former Blackhawks winger Teovo Teravainen.  Teravainen has eight goals and 16 assists and leads the team in points.  But another former Blackhawk hasn’t been so successful.  Goaltender Scott Darling is just 1-3-1 in his last five starts and has an overall record of 8-9-6.  It’s still to be determined if Darling has the ability to be a true No. 1.
