Four of a Kind

Twenty of the 30 NHL organizations will go out with a bang. It's the final week of the NHL season and the four-game schedule has never been more prevalent. Here are a few teams you'll want to know about.

Calgary's (at NJD, LOS, WIN, at VAN) schedule is evenly spread out. We're not sure what that means for Karri Ramo and Joey MacDonald who both enjoyed solid wins last week. Their combined record against this week's opponents is 4-5-2.

Minnesota (at WIN, BOS, STL, NSH) has all but sewn up their ticket to the Stanley Cup playoffs. After travelling to the slumping Jets on Monday, the Wild host Boston on Tuesday, which begins a three-game homestand to end their regular season. Ilya Bryzgalov is turning out to be the deal of a lifetime, especially with Darcy Kuemper still out. Mikael Granlund (upper body) remains out as well. Their combined record against this week's opponents is 6-6-1.
