The Dallas Stars take on the San Jose Sharks tonight in another key game in the tight Western Conference playoff race. The Sharks can clinch a playoff spot by picking up one point in the game. The Stars could really use two points as they battle for that final playoff spot in the West.

“This is how it’s been the last couple games. We know we have to win games and this is the biggest game of the year,” said Stars forward Loui Eriksson. “I think everyone is ready for it. It’s going to be fun tonight and we’re going to try to get two points. We need it.”

The Stars are three points behind No. 8 Columbus and two points behind No. 9 Detroit. A win tonight and the Stars will still continue to control their destiny when they return home to play Columbus and Detroit later this week to close out the regular season.
