No. 5: Minnesota Wild

Previous: No. 4

Record: 43-22-6 (92 points)

Boy, what a change of events. This Minnesota Wild team was practically making a mockery of opponents any given night, and is now being faced with some concerns. The current five-game losing streak by the Wild cost them the top spot in the Central Division to the Chicago Blackhawks and raises some questions as the season comes to a close. Nonetheless, this Minnesota Wild team is far from lost. This team remains a serious contender in the Western Conference.
