After extending their points streak to seven games (6-0-1), the Kings were poised to take over top spot in this week's Power Rankings ... until they went to Nashville and had their doors blown off by the Predators on Monday night. Both teams earned a bump, but it was the Preds and their rapacious possession game that made the biggest impression. While still defined by airtight defense, Nashville has become equally dominant with the puck, setting itself up to be a dangerous playoff opponent.​

Biggest jump: Pittsburgh Penguins (12 to 4)

Biggest drop: New York Islanders (9 to 17)
