2017-18 NHL power rankings week 4

The Tampa Bay Lightning remain atop our consensus NHL power rankings this week.

The St. Louis Blues move up three spots to No. 2, passing the Los Angeles Kings who drop down to No. 3.

The New Jersey Devils and Columbus Blue Jackets move into the top five this week. The Devils move from No. 7 to No. 4 and the Blues Jackets move from No. 10 to No. 5.

The same five teams remain in the bottom five, but there has been a bit of movement.

The Arizona Coyotes remain at No. 31.

The Montreal Canadiens jumped from No. 30 to No. 27, dropping the Buffalo Sabres, New York Rangers and Edmonton Oilers one spot respectively.

** We used eight sources this week so we were able to drop the highest and lowest ranking from each team, then used six rankings to come up with our consensus.

We’ve taken power rankings from eight media outlets this week. To get our consensus NHL Power Rankings point totals, we awarded the top team 31 points, the second team 30 points, third team 29 points, etc.

** Keep in mind the dates the rankings were posted, and in some cases, they may have been submitted to their editors the day before it was published. Different outlets use different factors in determining their rankings. **
