No. 4: Minnesota Wild

Previous: No. 2

Record: 30-11-5 (65 points)

Minnesota just closed a four-game homestand in which is actually lost two games, and now comes three interesting games to end the month. Tonight they visit the Stars before hosting St. Louis on Thursday and traveling to Edmonton on the 31st. That last game opens a four-game West Coast swing that ends Feb. 7. The night after that? The Wild host the Blackhawks.
