1. Tampa Bay Lightning
Previous: No. 1
Even as the NHL continues to give chase, the Lightning continue to own the top spot in our NHL power rankings. They’ve won seven straight and are the first team to 50 points, getting there with a wild 6-5 win over Colorado. When Brayden Point is just shy of being a point-per-game player and he’s not even close to a top-two spot in scoring, you know your team is doing well.
