Pacific games remaining for Pacific teams:

ANAHEIM 10 games
DALLAS 11 games
LOS ANGELES 11 games
PHOENIX 8 games
SAN JOSE 10 games
This is going to be one epic stretch run. Every game is going to be like a playoff game. Right now, only three points separate the division leading Stars and the 5th place Kings. It's never been this tight before, and the 3 seed is up for grabs. I feel that if not for the Kings terrible home stand, going 2-10 in that stretch, we could be leading the division right now. Stakes are high, one or two games could mean the difference of winning the division or being out of the playoffs all together.

Here's what the short term looks like for each team in the Pacific.

1.) Stars, 68 points. Schedule: @ Edm, @Calgary, @Van, vs NJ, @ Det, vs NSH

2.) Ducks, 68 points. Schedule: vs Was, @ Min, @ Stl, vs LA, vs Min, vs Col.

3.) Phoenix, 67 points. Schedule: vs Was, vs Atl, @ Nsh, @ Phi, @ TB, @ Columbus, @ Chicago.

4.) San Jose, 66 points. Schedule: @ Nas, vs Was, vs COL, @ Det, @ Pit, @ Cal.

5.) Los Angeles, 65 points. Schedule: @ Columbus, @ NYR, @ NYI, @ Anaheim, vs Col, vs Det.

None of these teams have it easy going forward, and the Pacific teams will probably upgrade and load up for the stretch run.
