Stanley Cup Playoffs Power Rankings: It's anybody's year
Stanley Cup Playoffs Power Rankings
The long regular season is over and now it's on to the playoffs! Who are the contenders and who are the pretenders?
Keep track of how the teams stack up from week to week in the Stanley Cup Playoffs Power Rankings.
7. Colorado Avalanche
Nathan MacKinnon is great, but Colorado's real MVP this postseason may well be Philipp Grubauer who is keeping Colorado in every game.
6. Dallas Stars
Will Ben Bishop be ready for Game 7? He was not quite right after taking a slap shot to the collarbone in Game 6.
5. St. Louis Blues
Just when you think the magic may be fading for the Blues, they rally for a Game 6 win in Dallas to force a Game 7.
4. Columbus Blue Jackets
John Tortorella guaranteed a Game 7. He did the same thing last year against Washington to no avail, but this year's Columbus team has been a different kind of playoff performer thus far.
3. Carolina Hurricanes
Every other series may be closely contested, but the Hurricanes were the first team to punch their tickets to the conference final with a four-game sweep of the Islanders.
2. San Jose Sharks
Martin Jones is seemingly getting better every game. He was the one major weakness this Sharks team had.
1. Boston Bruins
David Pastrnak is putting on a show right now. He has been brilliant against Columbus.
