With just over a week of the NHL 2014 regular season remaining, the race to make the play-offs is set to go down to the wire in the Eastern and Western Conferences. Although ten teams have already clinched their place in the Play-Offs, several others stand a realistic chance of joining them to retain the dream of lifting the infamous Stanley Cup trophy.
