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. **
