Power Rankings: Playoff-like weekend shakes up our latest list

Updated: January 19, 2009, 5:08 PM ET

After the NHL's own version of championship weekend, the Power Rankings went through a little shake-up.

East powers (Boston vs. Washington) and West powers (Detroit vs. San Jose) both tangled this past weekend, with the Capitals and Sharks emerging victorious. Both teams were rewarded here for those hard-fought wins, but we all know how things can change from week to week.

For our one highlight from the dogfight at the bottom half of this week's list, we give you this gem from Toronto Maple Leafs coach Ron Wilson: "Napoleon? Well, whatever Don Cherry wants to say -- I'll compare my record with Don Cherry. He can call me whatever he wants."

As always, tells us how you feel about this week's rankings.
