Stars 18th in ESPN Power Rankings

The Dallas Stars are 18th in this week's ESPN NHL Power Rankings, the same spot they held one week ago.

Scott Burnside, who put together this week's rankings, said this about the Stars:

"The Stars are hanging around the playoff picture in the West. It's time for Kari Lehtonen to prove he's a franchise netminder."

The New York Rangers are No. 1 in this weeks rankings. Detroit, Vancouver, Nashville and St. Louis round out the top five. The full rankings are here.
