(27-30-10) Dallas Stars vs. San Jose Sharks (40-19-7)
The Sharks come into this one still with a realistic chance to catch the Wild for 1st in the conference and gain home ice advantage until the finals.
They sit 5 points back with both teams having 16 games remaining. Meanwhile the Dallas Stars are having to deal with missing the playoffs for the 7th time in 9 years.
It’s been a frustrating year for the Dallas Stars. A year after it seemed they had crossed a threshold and become a playoff team again, it all comes crashing down.
The Stars won a divisional championship for the first time since 2006 last year, then defeated the Wild in 6 games before dropping the next round to the Blues in 7. Now however, the franchise deals with being outside of the playoff cutoff line again.
The team unloaded Patrick Eaves to the Ducks at the deadline, further waving the white flag on the season. After last year the Stars must have never figured they would be selllers this year.
They aren’t giving up however. They beat Washington 4-2 this week, though they would lose 5-2 to Ottawa 2 days later.
San Jose Sharks
The defending conference champions have a 7 point lead in the Pacific, but trail the conference leader, Minnesota, by 5 points.
The team that has seemingly always been in the mix finally won their first conference championship last year, but are running out of time if they want to change their status from contender to champion with this crop of players.
At 37, and with his production shrinking, the end is in sight for Joe Thorton. If he is to win a Stanley Cup in his career, it’s going to have to be soon.
Luckily the Sharks have plenty of talent to potentially help drag Thorton across the finish line. Brent Burns is having the season of a lifetime, and at 32 he probably knows the chances for him to win a cup get smaller with each postseason as well.

While the Stars aren’t giving up, it’s a team without a goal at the moment. The Sharks meanwhile are a team gearing up for the postseason, where they came within 2 wins of hockey immortality last year.
