Welcome to the Battle of #8 seeds at American Airlines Center! The Columbus Blue Jackets and Dallas Stars both have collected 89 points with three games left on the schedule and both hold down the 8 seed in their respective conferences with the only difference between the two teams being the Blue Jackets have a 4 point cushion while the Stars cushion is a measly 2 points.
The Stars picked up two points in a shootout while tonight’s opponent beat the Pheonix Coyotes in overtime to create the tiniest of margins. The Stars need to keep their offense rolling against a very good goalie in the Bob and a motivated Blue Jackets team that clinches a playoff spot if they pick up two points in any way tonight.
The Stars will be down 1-0 at the start of the game since this is the make up game of the Rich Peverley game but they will get 60 minutes to get play their game and pick up the two points they desperately need for their playoff dreams.
Here is the Viewing info for tonight’s game.
