Close to one-fourth of the National Hockey League regular season is over. A number of teams have seen a bundle of early success, while others have lost their edge. Certain players have put up remarkable numbers, thus far, while others have had a difficult time adjusting to the condensed schedule.
Boston has won two straight and five of its last six, while Pittsburgh has won five in a row after losing to the New York Islanders, 4-1, on Jan. 29. Chicago, Anaheim and San Jose are off to tremendous starts as well. Still others like Los Angeles, Phoenix, Washington and Philadelphia are looking to get out of an early season funk.
