Today's games of note:

Anaheim @ Calgary

Edmonton @ Detroit

San Jose @ Columbus

An Anaheim and Edmonton loss will help pad the Stars' lead over those below them. If the Stars win again tomorrow then the Stars can give themselves just a bit of breathing room between themselves and 9th place.

However, expect this constant jostling in the standings until the Stars can catch up to those around them in games played.

Here's Mark Stepneski's rundown of the standings based on points percentage.
