The Chicago Blackhawks move up five places thanks to the outstanding play of Corey Crawford. The 26-year old netminder led the defending Stanley Cup champs to a 3-0-0 record last week, posting a 1.95 goals-against average, .936 save percentage and one shutout.

Crawford opened Week 20 by making 31 saves in a 5-3 win over the St. Louis Blues and followed up with another 31-save performance against the Nashville Predators to earn his fourth career shutout. Crawford closed out his stellar week by stopping 26 shots in regulation and overtime plus all three shootout attempts in a 4-3 win over the Phoenix Coyotes.

How did your team fare in Week 20? Read on to find out.

(Note: The Power Rankings will be based on a formula of points earned divided by the maximum amount of points possible [points/games played x 2]. In case of a tie, categories such as wins, goals against, goals for, power-play goals and power-play percentage will determine rankings.)

40-16 -0 1 1/22
(.693) -- The Flyers did just enough in Week 20 to move past the Canucks in the rankings. They could have put more room between Vancouver and themselves had their specialty teams performed better. Philly gave up three power-play goals on seven chances in its two losses, while failing to connect on any of its man-up opportunities.

(.570) -- After losing his first two starts of the week, Miikka Kiprusoff got back on track by turning away everything fired his way in a 1-0 win over the Blues on Sunday. The goose egg against St. Louis was Kiprusoff's second shutout in his last four starts.

(.532) -- By picking up three points in three games, the Hurricanes managed to stay in the playoff picture in the East. But the team cannot afford another 3-7-3 stretch the rest of the way if it wants to be one of the last eight standing in its conference.

(.468) -- The good news that came out of Week 20 for the Avs was that the team was able to put an end to a 10-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory over the Blues last Tuesday night. But the bad news was that the winning didn't last very long, as Colorado closed out the week with three straight losses.
