Don't worry, hockey fans. You're not holding your newspapers upside down, and there's nothing wrong with your computer.
The NHL standings heading into the final day of the first month of the season are correct.
Odd-looking, certainly, but correct nonetheless.
Yes, that's the Toronto Maple Leafs
, out of the playoffs since 2004, sitting atop the Northeast Division and second in the Eastern Conference.
Yes, the Ottawa Senators
, who finished 13th in the East last season, are one point behind the Leafs and fifth in the conference.
That's right, last season's Stanley Cup finalists would be home for the playoffs if the season ended today. While Vancouver has the same 11 points as eighth-place Nashville, they're 10th in the conference. And Boston, the defending Cup champion, is 15th in the East and 29th in the League.
