The Hurricanes and Panthers have been the two teams atop our NHL Power Rankings throughout the first month. Check out where your team falls in this week’s rankings.

RALEIGH, N.C. — It’s been a thrilling start to the NHL season.

In the first month, we’ve seen a big handful of teams overperform on their expectations as well as a handful that are underperforming.

Lucky for them there’s still a lot of time to figure it out. This includes teams like the Avalanche, Islanders, Penguins, Stars and Canadiens.

Those overperforming thus far this season include teams like the red-hot Anaheim Ducks, New York Rangers, Minnesota Wild, L.A. Kings, Detroit Red Wings and San Jose Sharks.
