Jamie Sabau

The teams meet for the first time this season as both try to take ownership of the final playoff spot.

It's certainly been an adventurous 24 hours for the Dallas Stars, but there is yet another game on hand as the post-Olympic steamroller of a schedule continues to motor ahead.

Tonight it's the Columbus Blue Jackets on the menu, fresh off a win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Stars are clinging to dear life on the eighth and final playoff spot in the West while Columbus is just one point out in the East, so both should be quite greedy about the points at stake.

It's an early start thank to that silly time zone thing, so get your popcorn ready and your keyboards warmed up and join us here as the Stars try and continue to prove they have conquered their back-to-back demons.
