The St. Louis Blues, having added Ryan Miller and Steve Ott from Buffalo, remain the No.1-ranked team in the TSN.ca NHL Power Rankings, ahead of the Chicago Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins.
Among the team moving up since the last update, the Los Angeles Kings have won four straight and jump from 12 to eight. The New Jersey Devils are up, from 18 to 13, though they keep going back to goaltender Martin Brodeur, decisions that incrementally undermind their efforts to reach the postseason.
The Minnesota Wild, getting healthier and with only one loss in the past nine games, are up from 20 to 15 and the Washington Capitals, who had a four-game winning streak snapped Sunday, climb from 25 to 21.
Heading the wrong way, the Phoenix Coyotes have one win in the past six games and are down from 13 to 19, while the Toronto Maple Leafs slip from 15 to 20 after back-to-back OT losses coming out of the break.
Detroit, now minus Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk, drops from 21 to 24, and the Carolina Hurricanes, who have lost five in a row, are down from 19 to 25.
Among the rest of the Canadian teams, the Montreal Canadiens remain the highest-ranked, at nine. The Winnipeg Jets are up three, from 17 to 14, and the Vancouver Canucks inch up from 23 to 22, simply because they are healthier than they were going into the Olympic break.
The Ottawa Senators are up a spot, from 24 to 23, the Edmonton Oilers stay put at 26 and the Calgary Flames are up one, from 28 to 27.
