The Stars are 8th in this week's ESPN NHL Power Rankings, staying in the same place they were in last week's rankings.
Scott Burnside handles this week's rankings and has this to say about the Stars:
A big win over surging Minnesota on Sunday helped the Stars stay in first place in Pacific Division. The Stars, who have won seven straight on the road, bolstered their playoff hopes by acquiring Jamie Langenbrunner. The move should reinforce to the locker room that the Stars are in it to win it.
The Vancouver Canucks remain No.1 in the rankings, which you can find here.
