Tom Awad provides an updated set of NHL Player Power Rankings through March 30. T.J. Oshie surges, bumping a pair of Blackhawks down the list of skaters, while Ben Bishop is dethroned for the top goalie spot.
On the strength of three strong performances last week, San Jose goaltender Antti Niemi vaults to the No. 1 goalie spot. Meanwhile, Winnipeg forward Andrew Ladd joins the skater rankings at No. 6 and Chicago's Jonathan Toews moves up a spot to No. 2.
On the strength of three consecutive wins, Columbus goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky vaults to the No. 1 goaltender spot. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh forward Pascal Dupuis joins the skater rankings and Washington's Alex Ovechkin moves up a spot to No. 5.
Tom Awad of Puck Prospectus follows up with something he's been doing all year -- Player Power Rankings, or PPR -- for the second round of the playoffs. Somewhat unsurprisingly, Jaroslav Halak remains No. 1 among all players.
