The Chicago Blackhawks have a new streak going. Chicago saw three runs halted by a 6-2 loss to the Avs Friday night: a record season-opening point streak (24 games), a team record 11-game winning streak and the third-longest NHL point streak overall (30 consecutive games stretching back to last season). The 'Hawks followed it with a loss to the Oilers on Sunday, meaning they enter play Monday with just a six-point advantage on the Anaheim Ducks for the West lead and the Ducks have two games in hand. That has to be a little disheartening.

Boston goalie Tuukka Rask doesn’t have to prove much as he’s been more than a serviceable replacement for Tim Thomas. But Saturday’s win over the Flyers -- a team he surrendered a three-goal lead to in a Game 7 loss during the playoffs three years ago -- in his first meeting since that collapse didn’t hurt.

Not a bad five-game stretch for the Michael Ryder-Tomas Plekanec-Brian Gionta line. They totaled 19 points as the Habs won four of those five games -- all on the road -- to claim the top spot in the Eastern Conference. Let’s point out that the Bruins have played four fewer games.

The Kings are arguably the hottest team in hockey and in the most competitive division. LA has won eight of its last 10. Sure, the team may need some more balanced scoring and goalie Jonathan Quick isn’t near his form from last postseason, but the Kings are surging nonetheless.

The Leafs were one Sidney Crosby breakaway goal on Saturday away from what would have been a solid comeback win. The still managed to get five points over their last three home games, basically a pattern the Leafs need to follow to make it back to the postseason.

Back-to-back losses to the Blue Jackets can cause concern, even if Columbus has been on a tear of late. Through 26 games, the Red Wings have played 16 at home. The Wings will be have to be a lot better away from Joe Louis since they have the seventh-worst (3-5-2) road record in the league.

The deflection that found Rangers defenseman Marc Staal’s eye on Tuesday reignited the visor debate. While doctors are “optimistic,” the team will be without a top blueliner indefinitely. They have won two of three games minus Staal and when players like Brian Boyle step up, the Blue Shirts may be able to manage for a stretch.

New Jersey has the worst goal differential (minus-10) among teams that would make the playoffs if the season ended Sunday night. That’s hardly a positive, especially as 40-year-old starting goalie Martin Brodeur has been sidelined since Feb. 21 with back issues.

Winnipeg had points in three of its four games on a trip that concluded with a 3-2 shootout loss to the Devils on Sunday. The Jets only got one power-play opportunity in that game, but it’s just as well. Winnipeg is ranked 28th on the man-advantage (13.5 percent).

After a promising start in place of Brian Elliott, Jake Allen hasn’t proven to be a much better option in net as he splits time with Jaroslav Halak. It may not matter who is playing goalie. The skaters could be just as responsible on a team that allows the sixth-most goals per game (3.04).

That six-goal outburst against the Oilers on Friday get you excited? The Preds returned back to their low-scoring form, getting just one into the Wild’s net on Saturday. Nashville – the lowest-scoring team in the league (2.08 goals per game) -- did manage to get a point against Minnesota via a shootout loss.

The Avs may not make the playoffs, but at least they can say they are the answer to a trivia question. Colorado was the team that ended the Blackhawks’ run. Colorado chased it with a dramatic OT win over the Sharks on Sunday and a win against the Oilers on Tuesday will give the Avs their longest win streak of the year: three games.
