NHL Power Rankings: Sabers and Avalanche Climb, Bruins Stay No. 1

Taylor Hall and Casey Mittelstadt

Aside from the mighty Bruins, two other teams went a perfect 4-0-0 over the past week in the NHL: the Avalanche and Sabres.

For the Avs, what a difference a healthy lineup makes. It’s no coincidence the return of Nathan MacKinnon has helped them turn a corner, and even though they’re missing Cale Makar (expected to be back soon), they’ve quickly re-established themselves as a contender. With MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen anchoring different lines, it’s given them a two-pronged attack that’s difficult to stop.
