The most exciting part of the NHL season is nearly here. The playoffs are mere days away, and teams are fighting tooth and nail to get into the top eight of each division.
Teams will face a grueling two month test where only one team will emerge as a champion. Some teams will take care of business, where other teams will be playing the role of Cinderella. Truly any team can win the sporting world's best trophy.
History has shown us that it's not necessarily the best team that wins the Stanley Cup but the hottest. The ones that hit their stride right before the playoffs and go on a warpath are the ones that are the most dangerous. And these six teams are those kind of teams, the dark horses to win the Stanley Cup.
