Power Rankings: East outweighs West in this week's Rankings

Updated: February 16, 2009, 4:38 PM ET

Flu bugs. Injuries. Dismal power plays. All those and more contribute to another new look this week in our latest Power Rankings.

While the world wonders exactly when Martin Brodeur will return to the lineup, the New Jersey Devils just keep on winning. Four straight victories, including two shutouts from Scott Clemmensen, and the Devils extended their stranglehold on the Atlantic Division lead.

With the Sharks battling the flu bug, the Bruins searching for some power-play goals (2-for-36 skid) and the Red Wings losing a shot to catch San Jose for the Western Conference lead, the Devils, for now, return to the top of the heap.

Two teams taking a tumble: Montreal and the New York Rangers. Yes, both squads, which boast a ton of big names, are only two points better than Florida and Buffalo.

As always, weigh in here and rank your 30 teams. Until next time, puckheads.
