Will make it to the Playoffs?
Where the Stars stand
The Stars stand even with Phoenix right now for the final Wildcard spot in the Western Conference. Phoenix lost last night ( 4/2/2014 ) against the Kings, in regulation. This has helped the Stars stay ahead. Tonight we play the Carolina Hurricanes ( 2/3/2014 ). This will be the 2nd and final meeting between these two teams this season. If the Stars win tonight they can extend their league from Phoenix.

Antonine Roussel collides with the Caroline goalie.
The last time these two teams met the Stars came out on top with a 4-1 win. Then the penalties came also. Stars: 30 , Hurricanes: 33. What had caused most of these penalties was when Stars forward ( Antoine Roussel ) collided with the Hurricanes goalie thus getting into a fight and two major penalties ( 5m Charging, 10m Game Misconduct ). The Hurricanes player was assesed similar penalties on the play.
The Stars sit with 85 points in the Western Conference.
The Hurricanes sit with 77 points in the Eastern Conference.
