Minnesota is a team that has progressed in recent years, turning from a clear league outsider into a regular participant in cup battles. Still, the current regular season is going exceptionally poorly for it. From the beginning of the season, the Wild started losing points, and then they quit playing altogether, leading to a 7-match losing streak. Dean Evason's days with the team ended the day before he was fired, and John Hynes was appointed as the new manager. He will have to do a tremendous amount of work to get the team back to at least the previous level, and so far, they are only on the 14th line in the Western Conference standings.
St. Louis Blues
St. Louis is a strong team that almost always makes it to the playoffs, but in the cup battles, only once managed to get to the coveted trophy, and all other campaigns for the title ended much earlier. Moreover, the Musicians rarely made it past the top 8 last season, so now they are playing with even more solid motivation than before. That doesn't always translate into good results, but they've gradually gained some momentum, and in the last 12 meetings, they've managed eight wins and four losses. This stretch has allowed the Bluesmen to break into the playoff zone, sitting in seventh place in the Western Conference standings.
