Turmoil at the top?

#2 – Nashville Predators

Last Week: #1

Results last week: Win against Chicago, Loss to Vancouver, Win against Anaheim

No one really expected the Predators to just win every games, right? Last week was okay, at best. Sure, they earned four points in their three games, but they appeared tired. Or, at least outplayed. The Predators should have walked out with a win against Vancouver, but the Canucks played with a passion that pushed them to victory. The next series of games includes Boston, Dallas, Vegas and Vancouver.

#1 – Winnipeg Jets

Last Week: #3

Results last week: Loss at Colorado, Win against Vegas, Win against Ottawa

Beating better a better team pushed the Jets to the top of the Central Division. And the Western Conference. Their 7-4 win against Vegas was rather impressive. They followed that up with a 5-goal performance in shutting out Ottawa.

As for this week, things could change quickly. Can the Nashville Predators retake the top position? Will the Kings continue to streak up the list? Don’t avert your eyes, because it will be a fun week.
