No. 19: St. Louis Blues
Season record: 26-22-5 (57 points)
After a tumultuous week in which head coach Ken Hitchcock was replaced by Mike Yeo and center Robby Fabbri was lost for the season with an ACL injury, the Blues grabbed the second wild card slot in the west with an emotionally charged 2-0 win Monday night in Philadelphia.
Still, Yeo will have to shore up a soft blue line and a shaky tandem in net as the Blues continue a crucial five-game road trip through the East.
