HOLIDAY SONGS EDITION
- Arizona Coyotes
Last Week: 32
Blue Christmas – Elvis Pressly
The Coyotes are going into the Holiday break with the league’s worst record.

Last Week: 31
Where are you Christmas – Faith Hill
The Canadians are stuck wishing they could relive last year.
- New York Islanders
Last Week: 30
Sad Holiday – Niki DeMar
A large Covid outbreak and the disappearance of Mat Barzal equals an unhappy time of the year.
- Ottawa Senators
Last Week: 28
Someday at Christmas – Stevie Wonder
The Senators may someday be good, they have shown so much potential with so many players this year.
- Buffalo Sabres
Last Week: 29
Another Lonely Christmas – Prince
Uko-Pekka Luukkonen is playing unbelievable, but he is all alone, well
Tage Thompson too, but that doesn’t help my point with the song name.
- New Jersey Devils
Last Week: 27
Fairytale of New York – Kristy MacColl
It seems the fast start was all but a fairytale for the Devils.
- Seattle Kraken
Last Week: 26
The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot – Frank Sinatra
The Kraken is that toy you get and love for a while until it isn’t fun to play with anymore. The team is so boring to watch, and really just not good.
- Philadelphia Flyers
Last Week: 23
Christmas Makes Me Cry – Kacey Musgraves
The underlying numbers for the Flyers could make a Flyers fan cry.
- Columbus Blue Jackets
Last Week: 24
Sleigh Ride – The Ronettes
The Blue Jackets are riding Oliver Bjorkstrand’s hot streak, and continue to be over .500.
- Chicago Blackhawks
Last week: 25
It’s Begining to look a lot like Christmas – Bing Crosby
It seems the Blackhawks will just not go away, they are still a very average team, but they can still score goals as long as Kane and Toews are on the team.
- San Jose Sharks
Last Week: 20
Do You Know It’s Christmas? – Band Aid
The Sharks may be the most average team in the League, they are battling the Stars for the leagues’ most boring team.
- Detroit Red Wings
Last Week: 21
Better Days – Goo Goo Dolls
The Red Wings have seen better days and so have Thomas Greiss and Alex Nedeljkovic, safe to say it wasn’t a great weekend for the combo.
- Vancouver Canucks
Last Week: 22
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town – Bruce Springsteen
Bruce Boudreau came to town and Bruce Boudreau is riding a six-game win streak.
- Winnipeg Jets
Last Week: 19
It’s not Christmas Without You – Kathrine McPhee
Paul Maurice resigned and things are changing in Winnipeg.
- Los Angeles Kings
Last Week: 18
Jingle Bells – Bobby Helms
The Kings are going into the break just three points out of a playoff spot, the team is exceeding expectations and that is cause for a jolly tune.
- Boston Bruins
Last Week: 16
Baby, it’s Cold Outside – Garth Brooks
The Bruins have had some really bad luck with Covid lately, kind of like everyone else I guess.
- Dallas Stars
Last Week: 17
When it Christmas Time in Texas – George Strait
The Stars got an early Christmas present from Cam Talbot who gave them 6 fairly easy goals on Monday.
- Calgary Flames
Last Week: 9
Christmas is the Saddest Day Of the Year – Jill Sobule
The Flames did not get a game in this week because of Covid, this has not been a good start to the Holiday season for the Flames. I feel bad, but I had to move up the Ducks, so the Flames are a victim and move down on this Week 10 Power Rankings.
- Edmonton Oilers
Last Week: 12
Christmas Without You – Dolly Parton
The Oilers without a good defensive group seems like it just won’t compete well.
- St. Louis Blues
Last Week: 13
Let it, Snow, Let it, Snow, Let it Snow – Martina McBride
The Blues expected goals are not great, but they will continue to ride this possibly lucky streak as long as they can.
- Nashville Predators
Last Week: 14
I Wish it Could Be Christmas Everyday – Wizzard
The Predators have been the hottest team in the league, something they hope can keep going even after the break. The Preds continue to move up this Week 10 Power Rankings.
- Pittsburgh Penguins
Last Week: 11
A Holly Jolly Christmas – Burl Ives
Evan Rodrigues has been on a tear lately, helping the Penguins continue to rise in the rankings again.
- Florida Panthers
Last Week 4
You’re a Mean One Mr.Grinch – Thurl Ravenscroft
The Covid bug bit the Panthers bad, playing short-handed until being shut down gave the Panthers some bad results as of late. They do have to move down on this Week 10 Power Rankings sadly.
- Anaheim Ducks
Last Week: 15
Believe – Josh Groban
The Ducks are a grand example of how to rebuild. The team deserves to be moved up on this week, Week 10 Power Rankings!
- Las Vegas Golden Knights
Last Week 8
When My Heart Finds Christmas – Harry Connick Jr.
The Golden Knights got healthy and they became very good again.
- Minnesota Wild
Last Week: 4
Baby, it’s Cold Outside – Garth Brooks
After 8 straight wins, the Wild have lost four straight, not the place they want to be before the Winter Classic. The Wild did have some games postponed because other teams are having Covid issues, so the lack of games may have caused some cold legs, as well as some bad injury news of Jared Spurgeon going on IR.
- New York Rangers
Last Week: 6
I believe in Santa Clause – Dolly Parton
I think I do believe in the Rangers, they have such a fun team to watch.
- Colorado Avalanche
Last Week: 5
Holly Jolly Christmas
The Avalanche continue to score, but man they let up almost just as many goals.
- Washington Capitals
Last Week: 3
Christmas time is here – A Charlie Brown Christmas
Ovechkin update: 22 goals and 47 points in 26 games. The song title is was Ovechkin says every time the Caps are on the Power Play.
- Tampa Bay Lighting
Last Week: 7
Jingle Bell Rock
The Lighting was bound to end up in the top three on this power rankings.
- Toronto Maple Leafs
Last Week: 1

Then Leaf’s goaltenders have become an issue lately, but they still are a top team on this Week 10 Power Rankings.
- Carolina Hurricanes
Last Week: 10
Merry Christmas Baby – The Otis Redding Story
The Hurricanes are back to being dominant, they will go into break being the top team in the league again.
