NHL 15 - Power Rankings

Posted March 27th at 3:00pm.

The EA SPORTS NHL team has looked at all 30 teams and ranked them based on their performances during the month of March.

We'll be updating our Power Rankings throughout the regular season, so be sure to check back monthly. You can also share your thoughts on Facebook and Twitter.

These rankings are based on games played up to March 26, 2015.

1.

Last Month's Rank: 6

The Rangers are rockin’ and look to be the odds-on favorite to win it all this June. 

2.

Last Month's Rank: 5

In a year when goals come at a premium, the Lightning have them in spades. They’ve been at the top of these rankings all season for good reason.

3.

Last Month's Rank: 4

This is the team that no one wants to play come the post season. With Kevin Shattenkirk set to return, the Blues will be even more dangerous.

4.

Last Month's Rank: 8

Even without Patrick Kane, the Blackhawks are playing like an elite force. With Patrick Sharp out of his slump, this team is going to be a lot to handle come the playoffs. 

5.

Last Month's Rank: 2

Price for MVP!

6.

Last Month's Rank: 3

The Ducks will only go as far as John Gibson and Fredrik Anderson can take them.

7.

Last Month's Rank: 13

In a matter of months, the Wild have gone from wildcard longshots to Stanley Cup contenders…they are playing that good.  

8.

Last Month's Rank: 24

It’s been a remarkable run for Andrew Hammond and the Senators. The streak had to end eventually, but they have put themselves in a great spot to grab that final wildcard spot in the Eastern Conference.

9.

Last Month's Rank: 1

Don’t look now but it appears the Preds are having a bit of trouble scoring goals. Not good news heading into the most important stretch of the season.

10.

Last Month's Rank: 12

Ovechkin will once again take home the individual hardware this offseason, but the real question is can he carry this team deep into the post season?

11.

Last Month's Rank: 10

The return of Pavel Datsyuk will help the Red Wings get back on track. 

12.

Last Month's Rank: 14

Finally healthy, the Canucks look poised to finish second in the Pacific division and should have home ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

13.

Last Month's Rank: 15

The Jets are making a hard push for that final playoff spot in the West thanks to the surprising play of Ondrej Pavelec in goal. 

14.

Last Month's Rank: 7

Since the return of Kyle Okposo, the Islanders have only won once in their last seven games.

15.

Last Month's Rank: 9

Sidney Crosby has taken the scoring lead but that still hasn’t been enough to get the Pens out of their current funk. They need Evgeni Malkin back in a BAD way. 

16.

Last Month's Rank: 11

The champs look like they’ll be back in the big dance, but will they have anything left in the tank?

17.

Last Month's Rank: 16

Whether they make the playoffs or not, the future looks very bright for the Flames.

18.

Last Month's Rank: 19

Currently on the outside looking in. Unless they go on an extended playoff run, expect big changes in Beantown this offseason. 

19.

Last Month's Rank: 18

Jagr says his body feels like he could play for seven more years – Jonathan Huberdeau and Aleksander Barkov are crossing their fingers.

20.

Last Month's Rank: 21

Thanks in large part to the return of Tyler Seguin, the Stars have been one of the hottest teams in the month of March. It’s too late for them to make a legitimate playoff run, but finishing strong can have a positive effect on this group going into next season.

21.

Last Month's Rank: 25

The Blue Jackets are playing like the team we expected at the start of the season, there is still long term potential with this group. 

22.

Last Month's Rank: 22

Coach Patrick Roy will keep these guys fighting until they are mathematically eliminated. 

23.

Last Month's Rank: 17

They may be the most dysfunctional team in the entire NHL, which is saying a lot. Should make for an entertaining offseason. 

24.

Last Month's Rank: 23

You have to feel for Cory Schneider. He’s been playing outstanding all season, but just doesn’t have enough support in front of him. 

25.

Last Month's Rank: 20

Losing top goal scorer Wayne Simmonds to a broken leg is the cherry on top of a disappointing season.  

26.

Last Month's Rank: 27

The Oilers look like a revitalized team with Todd Nelson behind the bench. With the powerplay clicking, they have become a fun team to watch. 

27.

Last Month's Rank: 26

They play hard every night, but just don’t have the horses to get the job done.

28.

Last Month's Rank: 29

They are in desperate need of a cornerstone forward to help support Oliver Ekman-Larsson on the backend.  

29.

Last Month's Rank: 28

The worst part is that their fall may not be big enough to land the two biggest prizes this offseason.

30.

Last Month's Rank: 30

Their goal differential at this point in the season is an astounding -107. To put that in perspective, the Toronto Maple Leafs are at -44.
