NHL Rankings: Two teams fighting for the top spot

    As of now I'm completely satisfied with how everyone has been ranking the current NHL line up. There's really only a couple spots I'd disagree with, but they're much further down in the rankings so I'll just leave them be for now and focus on the two teams that I think are most important right now. The Tampa Bay Lightning and the New York Islanders have been absolutely killing it.

    On the one hand you have the Islanders and they are looking stronger than ever. As of now they're sitting at a nice 9-0-1 record and are currently on a 7 game winning streak. I'd easily say they probably have the most put together team they've ever had.

    On the other hand you have the Tampa Bay lightning who are sitting nicely at 8-1-1. Not much of a difference from the Islanders, but you have to at least mention it. The thing is with Tampa Bay is that they are scoring more goals per game and allowing fewer goals per game than any other team in the league. That makes up for that extra loss on their side in my mind.

    So with all that said, I'm hoping we get to see these two battle it out for the cup. That'd be an amazing series and I don't think I'm too far off with guessing that that's what we'll be getting.

    Good chance. Wouldn't look past the Hurricanes or Capitols though. They are equally hot right now. I predict a Hurricane v Islanders Cup. Let's see how that ages. Very Happy
