Stars-Canucks Preview

(AP) -- A strong second half has the Vancouver Canucks primed to rejoin the postseason, but the ultra-competitive Western Conference won't afford them any comfort the rest of the way.

With a slight cushion in the playoff race, the Canucks face off Saturday night with the Dallas Stars, whose desperate late-season push suffered a near-fatal hit their last time out.

Vancouver (43-27-4) has been one of the league's best teams since the All-Star break with 17 wins, tied for second-most in the Western Conference, but will still need a strong finish to stay ahead of playoff hopeful Calgary.
