In their last 15 games, the Wild have won just five times. Just two teams have been worse than the Wild in the meantime and they are the Colorado Avalanche and Arizona Coyotes. After a very strong start to the season, the Wild are struggling and seemingly cannot catch a break.
I always find small slates like Friday’s (three-game) much tougher than big slates because there is less room for error and if you don’t hit the nail on the head and other people do, you might lose everything.
In my opinion, the Eastern Conference is the more exciting conference of the two in the National Hockey League. I am going to be highlighting a player or an exciting line from each team to watch out for as you get your fill of hockey this year.
The Atlantic Division has been nothing short of insanity in the first 28 games of the 2018-19 season. Each team is hovering around .500 in the standings and the storylines are laid out for an explosive finish. Can Buffalo shock the world and take the Atlantic title? Will Boston creep up towards the end? Will it be a race to the finish for Toronto and Tampa Bay for not only the Atlantic title but the Presidents’ Trophy? There isn’t another division in the National Hockey League that has as much potential for a storied season as the Atlantic.
