Matty D’s Hockey Power Rankings
1. Tampa Bay: The Bolts are marching on but have a huge matchup with St Louis on Tuesday. Note for casual viewers: check this game out, it is going to be good hockey.
2. St Louis Blues: The Blues will be without Jaden Schwartz for up to six weeks as he took a puck off the skate in Saturday’s game vs Detroit. He has been arguably their best two way player with a +23 rating.
10. San Jose Sharks: If I would have told you Aaron Dell would be leading the NHL, more than a quarter way through the season, in both save percentage and goals against average, you would have called me crazy? Well, its happening.
