Stars 8th in ESPN Power Rankings

After their 3-0-0 homestand the Dallas Stars are 8th in this week's ESPN NHL Power Rankings, up from 14th one week ago. Scott Burnside, who put together this week's rankings, had this to say about the Stars:

The Stars continue to surprise with three straight wins. Goalie Kari Lehtonen has been spectacular, leading the league with four wins and a .955 save percentage. There has been a lot of offense from the blue line and nice balance up front. What's not to like in Big D other than wanting a new owner?

Washington is No. 1 this week, followed by Detroit, Philadelphia, Colorado, Toronto, NY Islanders and Buffalo. The full rankings are here.
