You know the very first thing on everyone’s mind, and pretty much the same noise heard throughout the NHL is goaltending when deciding on a victor in this matchup.

Power Up: Chicago Blackhawks rise in rankings and into Pittsburgh.
As it stands right now, the Hawks are the best team in the league. Their league leading points indicate it, no longer just at top because of games in hand, and now the Power Rankings say so too.
