On Tuesday, for the fifth time in six games, the Stars walked away with a win. Meanwhile, in St. Louis, the Blues notched their fifth straight victory. Mark Stepneski takes a look at the battle for the No. 1 spot in the #MDK.
Both the Stars and Blues have identical 46-22-9 records but the Stars still hold first place in the Central Division and Western Conference based on their 44-41 advantage in the regulation/overtime wins (ROW) tiebreaker. That's where we stand with five games remaining in the regular season.
And just how does that affect the Stars' potential first-round opponent?
Here's a look at the Stars most likely first round opponents, according to Sportsclubstats.com. Right now, the three most likely possibilities are:
Minnesota (46.9%): Stars were 4-1-0 in season series.
Chicago (36.8%): Stars were 4-1-0 in season series.
Nashville (14.5%): Stars are 3-1-0 in season series, one game remaining
