17. Los Angeles Kings

Previous: No. 14

Record: 28-23-4 (60 points)

Just think of what could happen if Jonathan Quick returns at even partial strength. The Kings have more regulation/overtime wins (27) than Nashville (25) and Edmonton (26) despite playing fewer games than both, so there’s a shot to move up from the second wild card.
