Power Rankings: The Blue Jackets 'all-in' push is a puzzler

Power Rankings: The Blue Jackets 'all-in' push is a puzzler Hey everyone, we here at Yahoo Sports are doing real power rankings for teams Nos. 1-31. Here they are, based on only how I am feeling about these teams, meaning you can’t tell me I’m wrong because these are my feelings and feelings can’t be wrong. Please enjoy the Power Feelings. 31. Ottawa Senators (Last week: 30) Just a note to start out here: The feelings aren’t based solely on the last week of games, or trades, but more like a mix of the two and how it affects teams’ Cup chances. Do not yell at me about this. Erik Brannstrom is a future top-pairing guy, just like Thomas Chabot. Plus they have, I think, 600 picks in the next few drafts.

Erik Gudbranson was brought in at the trade deadline to inject some physicality into the Penguins' game. He showed why in Pittsburgh's matchup the Capitals on Tuesday.

The veteran defenseman took down Washington winger Tom Wilson in the third period after the big man went after Penguins LW Jake Guentzel.

This, however, was part of a bigger scrum. It started when Wilson and Alex Ovechkin got into a collision with Penguins defenders near the net.

Canucks defenseman Erik Gudbranson , right, defending against Lightning left wing Adam Erne, would have been sought by some teams if he had not signed an extension. " Erik is an important part of our team and provides a physical element to our blue line," general manager Jim Benning said.

After that Wilson went to take on Guentzel, but Gudbranson stepped in and wouldn't let the Capitals winger get a shot off on the 24-year-old Penguin.

The two players ultimately wrestled around on the ice before officials separated them.

Both men got two-minute penalties and the game went on — just another Penguins-Capitals matchup in March.

Wilson, of course, has a long history against the Penguins. This year he knocked out Jamie Oleksiak in the first minute of his first game on the ice against the Penguins.

He also, now somewhat infamously, broke the jaw of Zach Aston Reese in last year's Eastern Conference Semifinals.

He was suspended three games for that hit.

Braden Holtby made 35 saves to compensate for an inconsistent effort by his teammates, and the Washington Capitals beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3-1 to snap a two-game skid. Holtby was in late-season form and helped Washington kill off three of four Philadelphia power plays. That allowed the Capitals to avoid what would have been their first three-game losing streak since January.
