Minnesota Wild. 13. team. 98. Bruce Boudreau has historically had fantastic regular-season teams, and the Minnesota Wild are living up to that. They have allowed a league-low 28 goals and are playing terrific defense. Led by minutes-eater Ryan Suter, the Wild are on a mission this year to go deeper into the playoffs. 32-year old Eric Staal is leading the team in points with 13 while Suter isn’t too far behind. This team is very good at cycling the puck in the offensive zone and taking hard shots from the point. Look for them to be a dark horse this June.. 8-5-1. Previous: 12th
