ESPN comments:

The Wild, on a 9-2-1 roll in January, are the top team in the Western Conference, thanks largely to their No. 1 netminder, Vezina Trophy favorite Devan Dubnyk. Minnesota visits Edmonton this week for an interesting tilt with the Pacific Division-leading Oilers.

The biggest risers of the week are the Boston Bruins, jumping eight spots from #23 to #15. The biggest drop of the week belongs to the Calgary Flames, plunging eight spots from #14 to #22.

The Wild face the Oilers tomorrow (Tuesday) night in Edmonton.  

Let's Go Wild!
