When a team like the Philadelphia Flyers is on a remarkable nine-game winning streak, its a no-brainer that it will move up in the rankings. The same can be said for the Minnesota Wild and Calgary Flames, who are enjoying winning streaks of four and six games, respectively. Still, it takes more than that to dethrone the top two teams. Once again, the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens switch places atop our rankings, with the Flyers shooting up to third.Were also seeing some individual performances boost the St. Louis Blues, Minnesota Wild and Boston Bruins.The bottom of the barrel has minimal change, with the Vancouver Canucks, Arizona Coyotes and Colorado Avalanche still looking up at the rest of the league.1. (Last week 2) New York Rangers, 20-9-1Coach Alain Vigneault has gone with the hot hand in net, and now the Rangers have a goalie controversy brewing.?Antti Raanta?went 3-0, forcing?Henrik Lundqvist?to the sidelines as a healthy backup for three games for the first time in three years.2. (1) Montreal Canadiens, 19-6-3With forwards Alex Galchenyuk and David Desharnais both sidelined with knee injuries, many thought the Canadiens would struggle offensively. Instead, Montreal scored 10 goals against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday, led by captain Max Pacioretty (four goals and one assist) and?Tomas Plekanec?(a career-high four assists in the win).3. (10) Philadelphia Flyers, 18-10-3The Flyers extended their winning streak to nine games by getting lots of goals from their scorers, good defense from the blueliners and strong goaltending. And all of this without defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, who is?day-to-day with an upper-body injury.4. (4) Pittsburgh Penguins, 18-7-3The Penguins are on a winning streak (five games) of their own. Captain Sidney Crosby has six goals and six assists for 12 points in his past seven games and leads the league with 20 goals. He and the Pens have four games this week, against the Coyotes, Bruins, Kings and Maple Leafs.5. (6) Columbus Blue Jackets, 17-5-4Columbus confidence is high, as the Blue Jackets have gone 7-0-1 in their past eight games. It also helps that goalie Sergei Bobrovsky is 6-0-1 in his past seven games, including five consecutive wins and a 1.56 goals-against average during that stretch.6. (3) Chicago Blackhawks, 18-8-4Captain?Jonathan Toews?skated on Sunday for the first time in a week, but the Blackhawks arent rushing his return from an upper-body injury. Backup goalie?Scott Darlings shutout streak was snapped at 125:39, but he has been outstanding in relief of Corey Crawford (out since his appendectomy).?7. (7) Washington Capitals, 17-7-3Coach Barry Trotz has criticized?Alex Ovechkin?for being penalized too often this season, and No. 8 has heeded his advice. After a seven-game goal drought, the Caps captain scored his 13th goal of the season -- and 200th career power-play tally, making him the 18th player in history to reach the milestone -- on Sunday.?8.? (11) St. Louis Blues, 16-9-4No rest for the weary. Goalie Jake Allen started his third game in four nights and his fourth game in six nights on Sunday against the Wild. At least hes getting help on the other end from forward Vladimir Tarasenko,?who has points in 14 of his past 18 games (10 goals and 13 assists).9. (8) San Jose Sharks, 16-11-1Forward Logan Couture is heating up and has seven goals in his past 10 games. Overall, he has 11 goals and eight assists for 19 points in 28 games.10.?(14) Minnesota Wild, 15-8-4The Wild have won four in a row and enter Mondays action in third place in the Central Division, thanks in large part to goalie Devan Dubnyk, who?leads the league with a 1.66 goals-against average, a .946 shooting percentage and four shutouts. Head coach Bruce Boudreau has done a terrific job in Minnesota, and his addition of former NHL defenseman Scott Stevens to run the defense has paid big dividends.11. (5) Ottawa Senators, 16-11-2The Senators need to fix their penalty-killing unit -- soon. Ottawa allowed three power-play goals for the third time this season, and the second time in as many games, during Sundays 5-1 loss to the Ducks. The Senators will miss defenseman Mark Borowiecki, who was suspended two games for his boarding penalty against Kings forward Tyler Toffoli on Saturday.12.? (12) Edmonton Oilers, 15-11-5I have no issue with captain Connor McDavid calling Flyers Brandon Manning classless after a game last week. Whether hes correct that Manning hurt him on purpose last season, its good to see McDavid ?-- who leads the league in points -- showing emotion.?13.? (15) Boston Bruins, 15-12-2David Pastrnak has been a dynamic player and the teams best forward. He has 18 goals in 24 games and is trying to become the first Bruin to score 20 goals in fewer than 25 games since Cam Neely netted his 20th goal in his 19th game during the 1993-94 season.14.? (17) Calgary Flames, 16-13-2Defenseman Dougie Hamilton had his third multigoal game, and second of the season, to help Calgary to a 6-2 win over the Jets on Saturday. The Flames have won six consecutive games, and Hamilton has played well since Brian Burke, Calgarys president of hockey operations, debunked trade rumors. On the offensive end, forward Sean Monahan has four goals and five assists for nine points during the teams winning streak.15.? (19) Anaheim Ducks, 15-9-5The Ducks have won three games behind the performances of Corey Perry and Ryan Kesler, both of whom extended their respective points streaks to five games. Perry has two goals and five assists for seven points, while Kesler has four goals and three for seven points during the streak.16.?(13) Los Angeles Kings, 14-11-2Forward Anze Kopitar has five assists in his past four games but hasnt scored since Oct. 25, a span of 16 games. Overall, he only has 14 points in 22 games this season. Meanwhile, Jeff Carter leads the Kings with 21 points. And Carter?scored the winning goal in four games during the teams recent five-game winning streak.17.?(9) Tampa Bay Lightning, 14-13-2Forward Nikita Kucherov has not gone more than two consecutive games this season without recording a point. He had an assist during Saturdays 4-3 loss to the Penguins. He now has 13 goals and 17 assists for 30 points in 29 games.18. (16) Winnipeg Jets, 13-16-3Defenseman Dustin Byfuglien has one goal and six assists for seven points in his past eight games. Teammate Mark Scheifele has 14 goals and 14 assists for 28 points in 29 games.19.?(18) Nashville Predators, 12-11-4Forward Mike Ribeiro is producing consistently of late, posting two goals and nine assists for 11 points in his past 12 games.20.? (20) New Jersey Devils, 12-10-6The Devils have dropped three straight, but you cant put all the blame on goalie Cory Schneider. He has allowed three or more goals in his past six losses, but its a result of the play in front of him. Thats why New Jersey is scrambling.21.?(21) Florida Panthers, 13-12-4Goalie Roberto Luongo made 37 saves as the Panthers snapped a four-game losing skid with a 4-2 win over the Canucks on Saturday. Florida is 1-2-2 in its past five. Luongo has 446 career wins and is one shy of tying Terry Sawchuk for fifth all-time. Meanwhile, the ageless?Jaromir Jagr is four points shy of tying Mark Messier for second place all-time with 1,887 points.22. (26) Detroit Red Wings, 13-12-4It can be difficult to defend Dylan Larkin when hes using his ridiculous speed, and thats exactly what he has been doing lately, dashing by defenders to score four goals in his past nine games. Veteran forward Frans Nielsen is clearly enjoying his first season in Detroit. He has three goals and five assists for eight points in his past nine games.23. (23) Carolina Hurricanes, 11-11-6Defenseman Noah Hanifin has recorded an even-or-better plus/minus in 16 consecutive games. As a rookie last season, he had 14 consecutive games with a similar stretch.24.?(22) Dallas Stars, 11-13-6Defenseman Jamie Oleksiak was suspended for two games for an illegal check to the head of the Flyers Chris VandeVelde on Saturday, which will slow an already-struggling D.25.? (24) Toronto Maple Leafs, 11-11-5Goalie Antoine Bibeau made his NHL debut and finished with 26 saves in Sundays 3-1 loss to the Avalanche. Leafs rookie Auston Matthews has six goals in his past eight games.26.?(25) Buffalo Sabres, 10-11-6The Sabres have lost three of their past four games. Since Jack Eichel returned, Buffalo is 3-2-1. But inconsistency continues to plague the Sabres, and their special teams need to improve.?27.? (30) New York Islanders, 11-11-5Captain John Tavares has three goals and two assists for five points to extend his point streak to five games. The Islanders are 5-1-1 in their past seven games and will face the Capitals and Blackhawks next.28.?(27) Vancouver Canucks, 12-15-2Forward Bo Horvat is second on the team with eight goals and hes third in points, with 16. He has also been solid at the faceoff dot.29.?(28) Arizona Coyotes, 9-13-5Brendan Perlini scored his first career NHL goal in only his fourth game to help the Coyotes snap a six-game losing skid by beating the Predators 4-1 on Saturday. The Coyotes Alex Goligoski is one of six NHL defensemen to have at least 10 assists, 50 blocked shots and 30 hits, joining the Blue Jackets Erik Johnson, the Canadiens Shea Weber, the Ducks Sami Vatanen, the Jets?Dustin Byfuglien?and the Flyers Ivan Provorov.30.? (29) Colorado Avalanche, 11-15-1The Avalanche have been battling inconsistency all season. Goalie Semyon Varlamov made 51 saves en route to a 3-1 win over the Maple Leafs on Sunday. On Saturday, the Canadiens blasted Colorado 10-1. It was Avalanche veteran forward Jarome Iginlas 1,500th NHL game. Paul George Jersey . "I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from. Thaddeus Young Jersey .Y. -- Marcell Dareus and the Buffalo Bills defence made life miserable for Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco. http://www.officialpacersprostore.com/ . After a lengthy wait, persistent rain finally forced the postponement of the Nationals game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night. The teams, and a few thousand fans, waited nearly four hours from the 7:05 scheduled start time before an announcement was made shortly before 11 p. T. J. Leaf Jersey .C. -- Manny Malhotra had two goals and an assist, leading the Carolina Hurricanes to a 6-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. Mark Jackson Jersey . PAUL, Minn. Whether or not Minnesota plays in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 27 is the least important part of the standoff thats developing between the football players and the administration over whether 10 players have been fairly suspended around a case of alleged rape.If the school doesnt go to the bowl game, it stands to lose a big revenue opportunity and leaves players with lingering questions about due process. If the administration capitulates, it conveys in no uncertain terms that football is more important than a sexual assault investigation.Truthfully, football always has been more important.This particular case hinges on the idea of consent. According to police records, a woman told officers she was drunk when she was sexually assaulted in a players apartment by several men on Sept. 2, including some of the suspended players. She said her sexual contact with two men may have been consensual but that her contact with four of them was not. Other people were in the room while this happened, but prosecutors declined to take the case forward, citing lack of evidence.?The university started its own Title IX investigation at the same time as the polices investigation, a source told ESPN. According to a report by ESPNs Adam Rittenberg, the primary issue for the boycott was the school suspending the players before a hearing based on the Title IX investigation had been held. That hearing wouldnt have taken place until January, after the bowl game.Football players and parent Antoine Winfield are saying they arent sure why these players have been suspended in the middle of the football season. And to be sure, those players do have rights in the Minnesota investigation.Concern about those rights has resulted in one of the rare instances in which athletes have banded together and refused to play football because they believe in something more than wins and losses. The boycott, involving all the players of the team, represents exactly what you want to see in some ways -- a group bonded, calling each other brothers, loyal above all to each other. Thats admirable. And yet, as more than one person has pointed out on Twitter, it would be nice to see a team boycott to defend alleged victims of sexual assault.Earlier this year, a player at Baylor insinuated that the team would wear black in support of Art Briles, their former coach who reportedly knew about sexual assaults allegedly perpetrated by players and didnt report thhose incidents.dddddddddddd.Unity is a great trait in a football team. However, when it comes to sexual assault, the togetherness creates an us-against-them mentality that sends a clear message to those who might need to report a rape against a member of a team: We will fight back. With numbers.Unlike Baylors players, Minnesotas team may be putting into place a challenge to Title IX. A statement made by wide receiver Drew Wolitarsky was full of legalese, such as saying the school breeched fiduciary duty to the players by implementing the suspension. Now, Wolitarsky or some other player on the team could be legally minded, but its not news that opponents of Title IX have been looking for the test-case to unhook the law from cases of rape and sexual assault at universities, which it now protects. For the laws dissenters, Wolitarskys reference to an unjust Title IX investigation may be a crumb to build on.Despite Wolitarskys conjecture, theres a difference between the legal standard in a courtroom for conviction -- beyond a reasonable doubt -- and what is required for an institution to find a student violated the rights of another person. For survivors of rape and assault, the college setting can provide more support -- for example, making sure the accused and accusers dont end up in the same classes or dorms while an investigation is taking place. Thats something the legal system cant control. There are also actions that can be grounds for expulsion that arent grounds for criminal prosecution -- say, plagiarism of a term paper.Weve heard from the players and a parent, but we havent heard the voice of the other party in this case: the victim of the alleged crime. Without it, we can listen to players and hope they are treated fairly and with justice. We can hope the school is operating along the guidelines it has set to ensure the rights of the accused and the accuser. But we cannot think we have the entire story.Whether its college football, the NFL or beyond, if sports leagues are going to take sexual assault seriously, there may be times it conflicts with the game. And thats really OK. The most important lesson each of the parties in this case stands to learn will come off the field -- about consent, their rights and others rights and about choosing your causes carefully.
