What teams are best suited for a sprint to the playoffs and then the battle that is the post-season.
The last time the NHL had a shortened season the 1995 New Jersey Devils got hot at the right time and rolled through the playoffs to their first Stanley Cup win. This go around the New York Rangers have the best lineup to make it through the gauntlet that is the 2013 season. The Rangers are stacked with offense (Marian Gaborik, Brad Richards and Rick Nash) and they have the best goalie in league with Henrik Lundquist.
With that said you still have to play the games and stay healthy.
