Power Rankings: Hold on ... there's a new No. 1 in our town

Updated: December 22, 2008, 1:55 PM ET

San Jose's six-week reign atop the Power Rankings has ended. Not only that, the Sharks dropped to third in part because they were thoroughly beaten 6-0 by the Red Wings on Thursday in a possible Western Conference finals preview.

Boston has made an impressive climb to the top, but it arrives there with some serious injuries to forwards Patrice Bergeron and Marco Sturm.

So, enjoy, with our wishes for a happy holiday ... and don't be shy about telling us how you feel about this week's rankings.
