EDITOR'S NOTE: You've arrived at the CBJ Power Rankings, our weekly breakdown of the top-five players, statistics, trends and many other Blue Jackets-related categories. If you're looking for the traditional power rankings, you've come to the wrong place. We'll go in-depth and outside the box, and hopefully give you something to think about.
Everyone likes goals, right? If you consider yourself among "everyone," well, you're in luck. This week's Power Rankings are all about lighting the lamp, and in particular, which players in the Eastern Conference have done so with the most regularity so far in 2014-15.
Evgeni Malkin (16 goals)
The Penguins are in first place and their offense is clicking on all cylinders under new coach Mike Johnston, but it's been a frustrating go of late. Mumps has affected several players on their roster and injuries are mounting, but one constant has been big No. 71. He's leading the Penguins offensively and finding the back of the net on a regular basis, which is a good sign for Pittsburgh going forward.
