6. Calgary Flames

Week #9 Record: 2-0-0

Overall Record: 10-14-2

What’s Good? 

The Flames are getting back on track after losing three straight games on the road. They managed to score four and five goals, respectively in the wins against the Dallas Stars and Boston Bruins — two teams the Canucks were unable to beat. Dougie Hamilton finally looks like that new No. 1 defenceman the Flames were hoping for.

What’s Bad? 

Well, a team usually does not go from awful to awesome in a day and there is still a lot going wrong in Calgary. Both of their wins were one-goal games where they got scored on a total of seven times. Furthermore, the Flames’ 94 goals against are by far worst in the league (Winnipeg is second at 85).

What’s Next?

After playing Dallas and Boston last week, they will play against Buffalo and New York this week. Wins against those two and even the Flames would be in the playoff race again — the division is that bad. But it takes more to shoot farther up the power rankings.

Next: 5. Arizona Coyotes
