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.
