Stars admit it: They're watching the standings
PITTSBURGH — The Stars admitted they are keeping an eye on Phoenix, their closest competition for the final Western Conference wild-card playoff spot.
The two teams have jockeyed back and forth in recent weeks, and the Stars have a game in hand on the Coyotes.
Center Cody Eakin said the Stars set an internal goal for how many wins they need to make the playoffs, though he couldn’t remember the exact number.
“I think we all know about it,” captain Jamie Benn said. “The good thing is it’s in our hands. We’ve got a few games on Phoenix here, so we can’t be throwing away any more games.”
