TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – WINNIPEG WILD
The MMAAAHL regular season was once again a battle of the big-city teams, with the Wild finishing just a single point ahead of their cross-own rivals, the Winnipeg Thrashers, for top spot. For the second year in a row the Wild won 14 of 15 games after New Year’s Day, and a 3-1 record against the Thrashers was enough to help secure a second consecutive regular season title. Although Winnipeg wasn’t as prolific offensively as it was one year ago, it still scored 203 times, tying the Thrashers for the league’s best mark. The Wild spread around the offence, with its top six scorers separated by just seven points, led by Mack Hardy’s 16 goals and 30 assists. The defence was No. 2 in the MMAAAHL, allowing just 93 goals; goaltender Evan Johnson finished second in goals-against average (1.69) and save percentage (.937), and his 18 wins were just one off the league lead.
