The Dallas Stars are No. 4 in this week's ESPN.com Power Rankings, up one spot from last week.
Scott Burnside handled this week's rankings and said of the Stars:
The Stars (5-2-0) continue to impress even though they dropped a 1-0 decision to Nashville on Saturday. Goalie Kari Lehtonen is carrying a heavy workload early on but has been more than up to the task.
