Different Ranking in the East 

Today's Eastern Conference rankings are an example of where the StatBoni differs from the NHL. Where the NHL has

Toronto, Philadelphia, Tampa Bay, and Ottawa,

based on "games in hand", W-L, or PPG, StatBoni shows

Ottawa, Phildelphia, Tampa Bay, and Toronto.

Noting that Philadelphia and Toronto both have 80 points, but Ottawa has a game in hand with Toronto, and two with Philadelphia. Interestingly, the PPG metric is the better discriminator here, since W-L has Toronto and Ottawa tied. Hats off to Chipazzo for the PPG ranking idea!
