NHL Power Rankings: Breaking Down the League's Top 10 Teams

The latest power rankings have had quite the shake-up, as the usual teams who have been at the top of the rankings have been moved down to make room for hotter teams.

This week's rankings see the rise of two teams that look like they are going to be able to cruise through their final three games, giving them home-ice advantage in the playoffs. From there, the middle of the pack has a number of teams that are all playoff-bound.

But, some of the teams in the middle have been playing their best hockey, while others have goaltending issues that need to be fixed before the postseason starts.

Give this a watch and let me know in the comment section who should have been higher, who should be lower and who was ranked just right.

(Note: Power rankings reflect standings and play through Sunday, April 1.)
