Blues Stay Atop ESPN Power Rankings
The St. Louis Blues have remained atop the ESPN Power Rankings for the second consecutive week.

It's the first time a team has held the top spot for more than one week this season.

ESPN columnist Scott Burnside writes: "When you win seven straight as the Blues have, thanks to Sunday's 2-0 win against the Rangers, you get to keep your No. 1 ranking. Jaroslav Halak got the night off Sunday (Ty Conklin got the shutout), but is looking like the steal of the century with a .944 save percentage."

Through Sunday's games, the Blues currently sit atop the NHL standings with only 12 games played. They are off to their best start in franchise history with a 9-1-2 record.

In addition, the Blues claimed the top position with TSN and

They have landed at No. 2 in USAToday's Power Rankings.

Said TSN: "Not easy to take top spot with three blueline regulars out, but the Blues have won seven straight, giving up a total of six goals in that span. Maybe it doesn't matter who is defending as long as Jaroslav Halak and Ty Conklin are doing the job between the pipes."
