2. Minnesota Wild

Previous: No. 2

Record: 37-13-6 (80 points)

The Wild’s luck ran out for one night on Tuesday. They had five powerplays and won almost 60 percent of the faceoffs against Anaheim, but suffered a 1-0 loss. If they drop their last remaining game in hand against Chicago in regulation, a five-point deficit with two games left against the Wild won’t seem to crazy for the Blackhawks.
