Second Half Contenders or Pretenders
Contender: I don't think much needs to be said here. The three losses they had this month came against Toronto, the Islanders, and the Sharks. Those three losses were against teams either in first place or a few points out. Losing to Toronto was a minor set back for them but I'm not concerned. They came back and put a licking on San Jose avenging their earlier loss to them this month. They have a stangle hold on this division right now and lead the league in scoring.
