Despite some shaky play, the league leading Washington Capitals remain No. 1 in SI.com's NHL Power Rankings.

Big (and perhaps, belated) jumps this week for both the Predators and the Flyers, two teams whose recent play makes them far more dangerous than their records indicate. Nashville has been dominant on the road, winning 11 of 14, while scoring almost at will. Since Feb. 1, the Preds have scored 62 times, sixth most in the league, with all four lines and a very active defense chipping in. The Flyers have been even more productive, tallying 65 times, tied for third over that span, including 17 in the past four games alone. That's a huge turnaround from the first three months of the season. Philly scored just 77 goals through Dec. 31, the second-fewest in the league. 

Biggest jump: Boston Bruins (14 to 6)

Biggest drop: New York Rangers (4 to 12
