2. The Islanders beating the Rangers the way they did makes them to be in the mix as they have shown they can be tough
3. The Rangers also have been playing well
1. The Preds and Blues are playing well and with Elliott and Allen healthy they can make noise in St. Louis
2. The Wild have been a disaster for alot of reasons, bad goaltending and bad defense.
1. Bruins, 2 Islanders, 3. Predators and 4. Blues
