There's three games of significance tonight in the West as the idle Avs hang on to 8th for dear life.

Chicago at Dallas, 6:30 MT (roughly now as I hit publish)
Calgary at Edmonton, 7:30 MT
Los Angeles at Anaheim, 8:00 MT

Here's your standings as the night begins:

Rank Div GP W L OTL P ROW
3 Dallas PAC 71 39 27 5 83 33
6 Chicago CEN 71 38 25 8 84 33
7 Phoenix PAC 72 35 26 11 81 30
8 Colorado NW 73 38 30 5 81 29
9 San Jose PAC 70 35 25 10 80 28
10 Calgary NW 71 34 25 12 80 31
11 Los Angeles PAC 70 33 25 12 78 28

Rooting for Edmonton and Anaheim are a given to keep Calgary and LA at bay. Chicago/Dallas should be a fine game to watch (based on home/road/last 10 records I'd call it for Dallas), but really either team losing in regulation helps the Avs. Personally, I'm rooting for Chicago because a) they have more points b) I still think Dallas will crash at the end and c) to hell with the Stars. That said... Please don't have the 3-point game we all know you're going to have :(
