(HockeyStL) -- TSN released its weekly power rankings on Monday, and the Blues are sitting at the top. The rankings were put together by TSN’s Scott Cullen, who put all 30 National Hockey League teams in the order he thought best displayed their level of play.

The 13-3-3 Blues were followed by the San Jose Sharks and the Chicago Blackhawks in this week’s rankings. St. Louis slid up one spot from second place, where they trailed the first-place Colorado Avalanche last week.

The Blues routed the Avalanche 7-3 last Thursday, which likely propelled them into the first place spot in the rankings. The Avalanche fell to seventh place this week after losing three straight games.

The Blues have won eight of their last 11 games, and have picked up points in nine of those games. In November, the Blues boast a 6-2-1 record. The Blues have 29 points this season, which ties them for sixth place in the Western Conference. The Blues are third in the Central Division, trailing Minnesota by one point and Chicago by three points. The Blues have played two less games than both the Blackhawks and Wild.

The Blues hold the League’s top power play percentage (25.4) and are ranked third in the NHL in goals scored per game.

Minnesota and Boston round out the TSN top-five rankings for the week.
