The Dallas Stars are 21st in this week's ESPN NHL Power Rankings, down from 13th one week ago.
Scott Burnside, who put together this week's rankings, offers this take on the Stars:
The Stars have a new owner; now they have to find the success that has escaped them in the past month. The Stars have won just two of nine games -- a streak that is threatening to undo all of the good work done out of the gate -- and it doesn't get any easier with Kari Lehtonen on injured reserve.
Boston is No. 1 in this week's rankings, followed by Detroit, Pittsburgh, San Jose and the New York Rangers. The complete rankings are here.
