After 48 games the Wild are on top of the Western Conference with 69 points with a record of 32-11-5.

Minnesota leads the West in: goals (160), goals against (109), and goal differential (+51). The Wild have also set a franchise record for winning percentage (.719) at the All-Star break.

With the team being legitimate Stanley Cup contenders, here's how past team's that made the playoffs checked in after 48 games.

  • 2015-16: 23-17-8, 54 points
  • 2014-15: 22-20-6, 50 points
  • 2013-14: 25-18-5, 55 points
  • 2007-08: 27-18-3, 57 points
  • 2006-07: 25-20-3, 53 points
  • 2002-03: 24-16-7, 55 points

We left out the 2012-13 team because the season was shorten due to a lockout.

Even if the Wild don't hold the top spot in the conference by the end of the regular season, they're on track to at least host a playoff series in the first round of the playoffs.

Which is something the team has done just one time in its seven trips to the post season.
