The San Jose Sharks, still unbeaten in regulation, sit atop of the TSN.ca NHL Power Rankings for the second straight week, ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche.

The Boston Bruins moved up from 10 to five, on the strength of two road wins. Sweeping Florida is no great feat, but an 8-2 cumulative score still worked in the Bruins' favour.

On a seven-game winning streak following their season-opening loss, the Anaheim Ducks jumped, from 16 to 6, and the Nashville Predators climbed from 24 to 15 after capturing nine points in 10 games.

Vancouver's 2-1-1 record, along with the return of defenceman Alexander Edler, bumped up from 17 to 11.

The Minnesota Wild have been playing better than their results, which includes goign winless in their last three games, but until those results turn around, they drop, from six to 13.

A rough start to their road trip, with losses in San Jose and Anaheim, dropped the Calgary Flames from nine to 14, while the Winnipeg Jets, with one regulation win in the last seven games and suffering the loss of rookie defenceman Jacob Trouba, dropped from 12 to 23.

The Columbus Blue Jackets, who had lost four straight before Sunday's win over Vancouver, fell from 14 to 22.

As for the other Canadian clubs, injuries knock the Montreal Canadiens down from five to nine, one spot ahead of the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Ottawa Senators are up a couple of spots, to 21, and the Edmonton Oilers are up three, to 26.
