No. 4: Minnesota Wild

Previous: No. 2

Record: 43-18-6 (92 points)

Not everything is perfect at the top, as it turns out. The Wild suddenly have problems beating the Blackhawks (three consecutive losses) after owning them in the regular season for a solid stretch. Minnesota’s one game in hand on Chicago could matter a whole heck of a lot down the stretch.
