Things are starting to settle in among the top five and bottom five teams, but there’s plenty of movement among the remaining 20 teams in the WEEI NHL Power Rankings.
2. (6) 19-5-6 Caps win six straight. Top power play in league. Catalyst defenseman Mike Green‘s goal total (5) is down, but his plus-minus is up (plus-11). Still not sold.
3. (2) 18-7-3 Questioning the Blackhawks’ decision to ink defenseman Duncan Keith to a 13-year contract extension? Aside from leading the team in ice time, he’s their second-leading scorer. More points than Jonathan Toews, Patrick Sharp and Brian Campbell. Can you say, team MVP?
5. (5) 20-10-1 Always near the top, Penguins are primed for when things really matter.
10. (7) 16-9-2 The Sabres are settling in for a long fight with the B’s for the division lead. But scoring is an issue, and leading goal-scorer Thomas Vanek has just one tally in last seven games.

The Bruins practiced without defenseman Dennis Wideman and Derek Morris again Tuesday. The two were given maintenance days off Monday and apparently needed further time off today. Wideman suffered an ‘upper body’ injury in Saturday’s 7-2 win over Toronto. He did skate with strength and conditioning coach John Whitesides after the regular practice Tuesday. Coach Claude Julien told reporters he expects Morris to practice Wednesday.

After taking a commanding 7-2 victory over Phil Kessel and the Toronto Maple Leafs Saturday, the Bruins got back to work this morning. Defenseman Dennis Wideman and Derek Morris were both given ‘maintenance’ days and did not skate. Wideman left Saturday’s game with an ‘upper body’ injury and his status for Thursday remains unclear. ‘There’s no update, we don’t play again until Thursday, if you were going to ask me ‘ is he in ‘ I think so,’ said Bruins coach Claude Julien after practice Monday. ‘I can’t say he is in for sure.’
