Super 16: Golden Knights continue climb

Get first-place vote, but Lightning No. 1 for 12th straight week

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

The Tampa Bay Lightning continue to hold off the competition to retain the top spot in the NHL.com weekly Super 16 power rankings.

The Lightning are No. 1 for the 12th consecutive week, although they weren't a unanimous choice like last week. The Vegas Golden Knights, who defeated the Lightning 4-3 on Dec. 19, were ranked first by staff writer Mike G. Morreale. The Lightning were No. 1 by the other 13 writers.

To create the Super 16, each of the 14 NHL.com staff members participating put together his or her version of what they think the Super 16 should look like. Those were submitted and a point total was assigned to each.

The team picked first was given 16 points, second got 15, third got 14 and so on down to No. 16, which got one point.
