Slammer Hammer Jammer Bammers (9-2-3)

SHJB remains on top of the power rankings by going undefeated in week 7 by beating Chain Gang and splitting a tie with Shockers. SHJB is more than likely to clinch first place, as long as they don't allow themselves to get destroyed in week 8. SHJB will then remain the team with the most points in the ABHL. SHJB does not appear to be as dominant as they have been in the previous weeks as they merely beat Chain Gang by a score of 4-3 and ended up letting Shockers score the late game tying goal with no time left on the clock. Could the SHJB be slowing down due to fatigue over the long season? Or could the new additions be affecting the team chemistry in a negative way on SHJB? We'll see how they play come week 8.
Key injuries: none

This week - Rank #2

Roosters (7-4-3)

In week 7, four teams ended the week with records of 1-0-1, and Roosters is one of them. Both games played this week were tight. Roosters beat Tigers game 1 by a score of 4-3, then game 2 they end up tying Cash Only 6-6. Roosters have stayed consistent as of late and have not lost by more than a goal since April 9, 2011. This deep Rooster team has changed it's identity in the past few weeks. Morphing from the most physical team in the league to one of the most hard working and skilled teams of the league. Even with the recent trades as of late, Roosters have still been able to find ways of winning.
Key injuries: none

This week - Rank #3
Last week - Rank #4
Cash Only (5-7-2)

Cash only has been heating up at the right time and making a strong push for the playoffs. This team is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games. With the return of key forwards in Ryan Ho and Jason Lee, the team is looking like a strong candidate to make it deep into the playoffs. After their most recent trade and the buyout of a few of their players, the emergence of some forgotten players and the return of their captain, Cash Only has one of the deepest rosters in the league!
Key injuries: none

This week - Rank #4
Last week - Rank #6
Shockers (3-8-3)

Shockers finished week 7 with an impressive 1-0-1 record which still keeps their playoff hopes alive. Shockers have arguably the best top line in the league right now and they are riding that line for their final push to the playoffs in week 8. Shockers are blossoming into a very tough and skilled team as the season is coming to an end. But will this late surge be too late? Shocker fans are crossing their fingers praying for the team to make it to that 4th and final spot in the playoffs!
Key injuries: Eric Dang (ankle)

This week - Rank #5
Last week - Rank #2
Chain Gang (8-6-0)

The biggest power ranking drop of the season goes to Chain Gang. The once almighty Chain Gang started the season hot and led the league in points and looked like the team to beat. After a few new moves, chemistry died and the Chain Gang couldn't play the Chain Gang winning ways anymore. They started the season 5-0, and they are currently 0-4 in their last four games. This is quite the turn around. Lucky for CG, they have clinched a playoff spot, but the Chain Gang will need to regroup and find a way to start winning games come playoff time.
Key injuries: Winslow Tang (groin injury)

This week - Rank #6
Last week - Rank #5
Flying Tigers (4-9-1)

Still to date the Flying Tigers have not made any trades to improve their team. The light the end of the tunnel for ABHL playoffs is getting dimmer as they will need a miracle in week 8. It did not contribute to FT's cause as starting goaltender John Vu went down to a lower body injury. GM of flying Tigers was then forced to sign Vincent Wong to the starting goaltender position. The Tigers have lost both games in week 7 which dampened their hopes for playoffs this season. Can this team make the final push for post season play?
Key injuries: John Vu (lower body)
