Capitals, Wild, Penguins, Blue Jackets retain top four spots

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

The San Jose Sharks continued their climb up the NHL.com weekly Super 16 power rankings, but making the top four seems to be impossible these days.

The Sharks moved up two spots for the second straight week, pulling in at No. 5 this week, but the Washington Capitals, Minnesota Wild, Pittsburgh Penguins and Columbus Blue Jackets kept hold of the top four spots for the third consecutive week. It is the first time San Jose has been in the Super 16 top 5 since the preseason rankings (No. 4).

Super 16: Penguins No. 1 again

Pittsburgh regains top spot, Columbus drops to No. 2 in latest rankings

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

In the words of Columbus Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella, the NHL is an unforgiving league. The NHL.com Super 16 voters are as well.

After being a unanimous No. 1 last week because of their 16-game winning streak, the Blue Jackets, losers of three of their past four games, dropped from their perch this week, falling only to No. 2 but barely holding off the Washington Capitals.

Super 16: Blue Jackets stay No. 1

Columbus, winner of 16 straight, is unanimous top choice in latest rankings

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

The Columbus Blue Jackets are the first unanimous No. 1 of the season in NHL.com's Super 16 power rankings. The Blue Jackets received a No. 1 vote from all 13 staff members who participate in ranking the top 16 teams in the League on a weekly basis.

The Blue Jackets, who are on a 16-game winning streak, didn't debut in the Super 16 until they were ranked 15th on Nov. 17. They moved up to No. 9 the following week and have been in the top 10 since. This is their second straight week at No. 1.

Super 16: Blue Jackets rise to No. 1

13-game winning streak propels Columbus to top of latest rankings

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

The Columbus Blue Jackets are on a 13-game winning streak, the longest in their history. A streak like that comes with its perks. Chief among them, at least for our causes, is the fact that you get to rise to the top of NHL.com's weekly Super 16.

The Blue Jackets, who haven't lost since Nov. 26 and haven't lost in regulation since Nov. 23, a span of more than five weeks, are the new No. 1 by virtue of receiving eight first-place votes among the 13 staff members who participate in the weekly rankings exercise.

Super 16: Penguins on top again

No. 1 in NHL.com rankings for third straight week

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

The top two teams in NHL.com's Super 16 didn't budge this week, but the hottest two teams in the League inched closer to the top with the panel of 13 voters for the weekly power rankings continuing to show their belief in the Columbus Blue Jackets and Minnesota Wild.

The Blue Jackets, who opened the month at No. 8, are third this week, a byproduct of their 10-game winning streak, the longest in their history, and 12-game point streak (11-0-1), which is one shy of tying the record for longest in their history.

The Wild, who have won eight consecutive games, are up to No. 7 this week after coming back into the Super 16 at No. 10 last week. They were six points short of receiving enough points to be ranked in the Super 16 two weeks ago.
