The Dallas Stars are ninth in this week's ESPN NHL Power Rankings, up five spots from last week.
Scott Burnside handles this week's rankings and says this about the Stars:
Kudos to Marc Crawford for getting the Stars back on track and in the thick of the playoff jumble that is the Western Conference. The Stars had won six of eight and had points in eight straight before a last-minute collapse against L.A. on Sunday.
Vancouver, Washington, San Jose, Detroit and Philadelphia are the top five teams in this week's rankings, which you can find here.
