The bottom four teams in the conference are each seven or more points out of eighth place … Within the playoff seeds, six points separate the teams ranked 4th – 8th in the conference, with #4 seed Anaheim having played at least three games more than the four teams directly behind them in the standings … The Western Conference features eight of the top 10 goalies in goals against average this season, including league-leader Dominik Hasek of Detroit.

Detroit leads the league with 21 home wins, while Nashville's 18 home wins are tied for the second-most this season … The Red Wings are 7-8-2 against the Central Division and 34-5-3 against the rest of the NHL … With 24 games remaining on its schedule, Columbus has 26 wins and 61 points, just 7 wins and 12 points shy of its totals from last season … Chicago has 11 wins and 27 points on the road this season, just 3 wins and 6 points shy of its total from last season. The Blackhawks still have 13 road games remaining this season … Detroit's Henrik Zetterberg leads the Western Conference with 70 points … Chicago's Patrick Kane leads all NHL rookies with 46 points.


Northwest Division
The top four teams in the division are separated by a total of five points … Division leading Minnesota faces the division's fourth place team, Vancouver, on Thurs, Feb. 14 … Colorado, currently the #8 seed in the Western Conference, is 7-1-0 against Eastern Conference teams and 11-6-1 against Northwest Division teams, but is 12-15-4 against teams from the Central and Pacific Divisions …Calgary's Jarome Iginla leads the conference with 35 goals.


Pacific Division
The divisions top two teams, Dallas (75 points) and Anaheim (71) have the second and fourth-most points in the NHL this season … San Jose (37 points), Dallas (37), Phoenix (36), and Anaheim (35) are ranked third through sixth in the league in points on the road this season … With 25 games remaining on its schedule, Phoenix has 28 wins and 60 points, just 3 wins and 7 points shy of its total from last season … With 23 games remaining on its schedule, Los Angeles has 24 wins, just 3 shy of its total from last season … Phoenix's Peter Mueller leads all NHL rookies with 19 goals … Dallas defenseman Matt Niskanen leads all NHL rookies with a +14 rating.
