NHL Power Rankings
April 9, 2013

After holding down the top seed for three weeks the Pittsburgh Penguins have relinquished that title back to the only other team to be ranked #1 this season. The Blackhawks continue to roll, collecting points in seven of their last ten, six of those being outright victories. 

The big movers on the positive side this week are the New York Rangers and Phoenix Coyotes. Both have really turned their seasons around since the trade deadline and find themselves back in the thick of a playoff hunt. In the Big Apple, the departure of Marian Gaborik seems to have given the team a little spark. Replacing Gabby with hard working forwards Ryan Clowe and Derek Brassard has really given the Rangers a nice breath of fresh air. For the Coyotes, they have looked like a completely different team since goaltender Mike Smith came back from injury. The team is 3-1 since the break and Smith has a goals against of 0.50 over the past two games.

What is going on in New Jersey? Losers of seven straight, they fall another six places in the rankings this week. No Ilya Kovalchuck has spelled disaster in NJ. They have scored the fewest goals in the NHL to this point, and while still a decent goaltender, Marty Brodeur cannot be counted upon to keep teams to two goals or less on a night basis anymore. The Ottawa Senators and Carolina Hurricanes are the other big fallers this week, losers of four and five constitutive games a piece.

Where does your team land in this week's NHL Power Rankings?
