Stars Vs. Oilers: Game Preview, TV Info And More

DALLAS, TX - MARCH 10: Goalie Kari Lehtonen #32 of the Dallas Stars stops a shot on goal as Bobby Ryan #9 of the Anaheim Ducks looks for the rebound while Mark Fistric #28 of the Dallas Stars defends during the second period of a hockey game at the American Airlines Center on March 10, 2012 in Dallas, Texas.

The Stars need to complete a season sweep of the Oilers to keep pace in a Pacific Division race that's coming down to the wire.

Another day, another battle to stay alive in the NHL Playoff race: The Dallas Stars are a point shy of the Pacific Division title, currently held by San Jose, but also a point shy of being out of the playoff picture entirely. With 87 points, Dallas enters Wednesday's game against Edmonton in the No. 7 seed, with San Jose travelling to 12th place Anaheim and Phoenix (87 points, No. 8 seed) idle.

The Stars can certainly help their standing by completing a season sweep of the Oilers, whom they've outscored 11-3 in three previous meetings. It's also the easiest game remaining for the Stars - they'll play two against San Jose, and three against top five teams in the Western Conference (Nashville, Vancouver, St. Louis).

Date / Time: Wednesday, March 28, 8:30 p.m. CT

Location: Rexall Place, Edmonton, Alberta
