2013-14 NHL Power Rankings: Week 8
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

This week's edition of the power rankings sees a changing of the guard at the top, as a difficult week sees the Anaheim Ducks tumble out of first place. 

But while the team at the top changed, there's a distinct flavour to the teams at the top that has only gotten stronger. The top seven teams on the list, and nine of the top 10, come from the Western Conference.

That's too be expected, of course. These rankings are calculated using a team's overall position in the standings as an anchor point, and the West has been dominant. Seven teams in the league are on pace for seasons of 117 points or more; all of them come from the West.

Overall position isn't everything, though; weekly performance is the other half of the rating, and there have been some shocking ones at both ends of the spectrum. Read on to see how those performances have shifted our list. 


Unless otherwise mentioned, statistics used come from NHL.com, capgeek.comtheAHL.com or extraskater.com and are current through Sunday's games.
