2. Rangers - The Rangers bounced back nicely after being stung by Chicago on home ice on Friday evening by defeating Columbus in overtime on Sunday. With the Bruins sliding, the Rangers remain the cream of the Eastern Conference crop. Just how different they'll look come Feb. 27 will be one of this week's stories, as rumors of interest in Rick Nash continue to percolate.
CBS Sports (3) and NHL.com (3) also released their power rankings.
The #1 ranking is based purely on the highly publicized red wings home winning streak. Not sure how you can have a team ranked #1 when they are .500 on the road...
Power Rankings are meaningless. We have 3 games in hand on Detroit and 2 on Vancouver...we could definitely have more points than both of them
