The Montreal Canadiens played four games last week and struggled to gather any points in the standings. How did it affect them in the latest Atlantic Division Power Rankings?
The Montreal Canadiens have gone in the gutter this season. Another awful week has seen them drop eight straight games and they are now in danger of dropping into sixth in the Atlantic Division standings.
The Boston Bruins continue to roll as they won all four games they played and barely allowed over a goal per game on the week. They have one of the best offensive players we have seen in many years in David Pastrnak who is lighting the NHL on fire with his play so far this season.
The Tampa Bay Lightning continue their yo-yo of a season as they lost all three games after starting to look like they found their rhythm a week ago. Are they the dominant team from a year ago or will they miss the postseason altogether?
The Florida Panthers continue to churn along and gain points though their style of play and defensive weaknesses make them look susceptible to falling in the standings. The Toronto Maple Leafs are playing better under Sheldon Keefe but is it enough to vault them up the power rankings?
The Buffalo Sabres collected a few points but have too many warts in their game to get anywhere near the top of the power rankings again. We all know that the Detroit Red Wings are in the bottom and that the Ottawa Senators are clearly the seventh ranked team in the division and will probably stay there for a long time.
How does it all affect the Atlantic Division Power Rankings? Take a look here and see where the Canadiens rank after going on a cold streak last week.
