The Stars and Blues will battle for first place in the division and conference on Saturday at American Airlines Center (9:00 p.m. ET, NHLN-US, FS-MW, FS-SW). This marks the fifth and final meeting of the season between these clubs. Thus far, St. Louis is 3-1-0, and Dallas is 1-1-2 in the head-to-head series.

Blues forward Troy Brouwer played in his 600th NHL game.  The Blues also signed defenseman Carl Gunnarsson to a three-year contract extension.


The Capitals will clinch a playoff berth:

* If they defeat the Sharks in any fashion; OR
* If they get one point against the Sharks AND both the Flyers and Red Wings lose in any fashion; OR
* If they get one point against the Sharks AND either the Flyers or Red Wings lose in regulation.
