ESPN comments:

The Wild are ranked fourth as a team in goals per game -- yet they don't have an individual in the top 15 in league scoring. They are a true team with 10 -- yes, 10 -- players with 10 or more goals so far this season.

The biggest risers of the week are the St. Blues, jumping six spots from #16 to #10. The biggest drop of the week belongs to the Montreal Canadiens, plunging five spots from #8 to #13.

The Wild face the Anaheim Ducks tonight (2/14) in St. Paul.  

Let's Go Wild!
