No. 21: Carolina Hurricanes

Previous: No. 16

Record: 21-19-7 (49 points)

Another team that’s lost four straight games while fighting for a wild-card spot, the Canes at least have an excuse: They were given a really unfortunate schedule draw. Their last four games saw a 4-1 loss to Columbus, a 7-1 loss to Pittsburgh, a 3-2 loss to Columbus and a 7-1 loss to Washington. Not the teams you want to be facing right now.
