Sunday's scoreboard watch
Chicago can gain two points on second-place St. Louis with a win over Boston, but the Blues can erase the effort with a win over Colorado in Denver. If Chicago comes away with at least a point they'll clinch a top three finish in the Central. Minnesota, who sits five points clear of Colorado in the second wild-card spot, can clinch a playoff berth with a win in any fashion for the Winnipeg Jets and an Avs loss in regulation to St. Louis.
Dallas plays the second half of a back-to-back in Anaheim against the Ducks. Dallas can clinch the Central, but they'll need some help. A Stars win and a St. Louis loss to Colorado in regulation would clinch the division and the top seed in the West.
