I have to say I'm not overly surprised with any team in the Central. Going in to the season I expected both Chicago and St. Louis to give the Wings a bit of trouble - both in games and in the standings.
My biggest surprise would have to be the Wild. Yes, they were going back to the playoffs but 3 shutouts already? They may not be able to keep up that pace - Stupid unbalanced schedule has them playing 12 of their next 15 in the division while the other 3 games are against the Blues (twice) and the Penguins - but that hot start is giving them a lot of confidence in a highly competitive division.
