NHL Power Rankings: B/R Experts’ Week 18 Poll

January 26th, 2014 by Dave Lozo Leave a reply »
Outdoor hockey dominated the weekend in the NHL, and it's only fitting the Anaheim Ducks were part of the festivities. The NHL's top team took care of the rival Kings at Dodger Stadium. Will they hang on to the top spot in the power rankings this week?

What of the Chicago Blackhawks and San Jose Sharks? Have they done enough to supplant the Ducks? Where did the blazing-hot Columbus Blue Jackets finish this week?

Our panel is back again to rank both the Ducks and the rest of the league. Voting this week are Jonathan Willis, Allan Mitchell, Lyle Richardson, Carol Schram and myself. The criteria remain the same, and the vote will focus heavily on recent performance, with the overall NHL standings only serving as an anchor point for each team.

Read on to see where every NHL team ranks, and please note the rankings are the result of the panel's voting, not one person's decision on the rankings.

Unless otherwise noted, statistics are courtesy of NHL.com and current through January 26.
