community news, NHL power rankings: Capitals on top, Penguins welcome back Crosby

The Capitals, Blues and Bruins haven’t ceded their top-three positions in the standings in over a month. Boston and St. Louis each have a lead of at least seven points in their respective divisions, while Washington holds a two-game lead despite Pittsburgh’s best efforts to try to win as many games with as few healthy players as possible. There are a few late risers, namely the Lightning, and as the schedule creeps toward the All-Star break, here is how we see the rest of the league stacking up this week:

31. Detroit Red Wings | 12-32-3 | Previous Ranking: 31

Dylan Larkin isn’t sulky about his All-Star Game selection, Filip Hronek’s play has added hope to the rebuild, Jonathan Bernier has provided solid goaltending, the Red Wings won back-to-back games for the fourth time all year and not everything in Detroit is doom and gloom. The Red Wings still have a 12-point lead on last place, though.

30. Anaheim Ducks | 17-24-5 | Previous Ranking: 27

The Ducks honored Corey Perry—sitting in a suite at the Honda Center while serving his suspension—and Andrew Cogliano in their first return to Anaheim. The latter helped the Stars shutout Ducks. One foot in the past. One in the painful present. As a franchise, Anaheim is stuck between both.
