Flames rise, Kings fall six spots in weekly rankings

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

Three Pacific Division teams are in the top 10 of NHL.com Super 16 power rankings for the first time since Oct. 19. That one of those teams isn't the Los Angeles Kings might be the biggest surprise.

The Vegas Golden Knights stayed at No. 2, behind the Tampa Bay Lightning, who are No. 1 for a 14th consecutive week. The San Jose Sharks moved into the top 10, at No. 9, for the first time since Nov. 16, and the Calgary Flames are No. 10, their highest ranking since Nov. 22.

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

The Tampa Bay Lightning should be the envy of the other 30 teams.

A day after three Tampa Bay players joined captain Steven Stamkos on the Atlantic Division roster for 2018 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend, an event that will be hosted by the Lightning at Amalie Arena on Jan. 27-28, the best team in the NHL once again is the unanimous No. 1 in NHL.com's Super 16 power rankings.

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.
