Each week, Hockey Night in Canada's Scott Morrison breaks down the balance of power in the National Hockey League.

1. PITTSBURGH PENGUINS [up from 5]
Record: 5-1-0 (10 pts)

Looking like a team that wants to win again.

If Gaborik stays healthy and they get a d-man, look out.

Record: 2-2-0 (4 pts)

They will be just fine despite injuries and deletions.

Record: 3-1-1 (7 pts)

Blew it against the Ducks, but still looking good.

What were they doing starting Rask back to back?
24. CAROLINA HURRICANES [up from 26]
Record: 2-3-0 (4 pts)

Giving up too many goals.
