The regular season came to an end on Sunday and now the season truly begins.

For some, it was a merciful end to a disappointing season. For those teams who were able to climb into a playoff spot, they now walk into the postseason with a clean slate. What happened in the regular season no longer matters.

Because of that, this week's rankings not only rank who is playing the best right now, bu also offers a prediction for each playoff-bound team. Regular season success does not always translate into the playoffs as Caps fans can attest.

Check out the final power rankings of the NHL season here.
