Cup Hangover is Over in Tampa
The Tampa Bay Lighting have found their Stanley Cup Groove again. Their four game win streak has vaulted them back up to the #1 slot in the NHL Power Rankings. Many predicted a fall in Boston this year, but that has not been the case. The Bruins have ran off 18 points in 11 games, locking them into the #2 slot. Florida, New Jersey and Chicago are also teams surprising as all move up the charts. Teams headed in the wrong direction are the Vancouver Canucks, Los Angeles Kings and Nashville Predators.
