FEWEST GOALS SINCE LOCKOUT

The NHL made rule changes after the 2004-05 lockout designed to increase scoring. If the Wild doesn't score six goals in Saturday's season finale against Phoenix, it will be the lowest-scoring team in the NHL since the lockout. Here's a look at the goal totals for the lowest-scoring teams in each conference over the past seven seasons:
