Northeast Division Power Rankings: October 21

October 21st, 2011 by Lukas Hardonk Leave a reply »
It was another wild week in the NHL. Right when it seemed as though Brendan Shanahan had stopped coming down on players for their on-ice actions, he slapped a two-game suspension on Pittsburgh's Kris Letang for a hit he put on the Winnipeg Jets' Alex Burmistrov 

This week, we also saw Toronto's Phil Kessel continue his dominance, while Penguins forward James Neal was surprisingly hot out of the gate.

The Northeast Division continued much the same way it did last week. Buffalo is still hot, Toronto hasn't slowed down very much, Montreal continues to struggle, Boston seems to be getting back to its old ways after a very slow start and Ottawa is still playing just as everyone expected.

Where do they all stack up, though? The standings don't always give the right picture, so take a look at this week's Northeast Division power rankings.
