Today's Schedule: 12/31

As we prepare to bring in 2010, A lot of teams will be bringing in the New Year on the Ice. The Dallas Stars will once again play their traditional New Years Eve Game as the Stars welcome the Pacific Division last place team Anaheim Ducks to town. In the early days of the New Years Game, the Stars were nearly unbeatable, but recently, that tradition has been shot down on different occasions.

The Stars are looking to build momentum after an impressive 5-4 win over the Chicago Blackhawks back on Tuesday night. Overall, a busy night with 11 games on the schedule tonight including all 5 Pacific Division teams as the Sharks will travel to Phoenix to take on the Coyotes while the L.A. Kings will play Minnesota.

Also, a blast of the past as the Colorado Avalanche and Detroit Red Wings will head each other as the Red Wings are a shell of their former selves while the Colorado Avalanche are still on top of the Northwest Division and have been one of the biggest surprises this season with the young roster.

Also we have a battle of the leagues top teams as the Eastern Conference Leading New Jersey Devils travel to Chicago take on the 2nd place team out West in the Chicago Blackhawks. Could this be a sign of things to come in the playoffs?

The Texas Stars will look to get out of their slump as the Stars will travel to Winnipeg to take on the League Runner Up from last year in the Manitoba Moose for the first of 2 games starting tonight and then on 1/2 as well from the MTS Center. Like the Stars, the Moose have won 3 of their last 4 and are rapidly moving up the North Division Standings just 5 points back of the North Division Leading Rochester Americans.

Houston will continue to their Illinois road trip where after a 5-1 loss to Chicago last night. Tonight, it's the short trip to Peoria to take on the Rivermen where it's starting to look like a penitently playoff matchup as the Rivermen in a tie for 2nd with the Milwaukee Admirals.

After losing a 3-1 lead, the Brahmas will travel to Odessa to take on the Jackalopes who are leading the Southern Conference. Elsewhere, the Allen Americans will head to Kansas to take on the leagues worst team in the Wichita Thunder where an easy win should be in order as the Thunder have won just 3 out of 29 games this season.

Finally, the Corpus Christi Icerayz will play the 2nd half of a home and home against the Laredo Bucks as the league closes in on the CHL All Star Game as the Icerayz look to make up for a slow start and to close the gap between the Icerayz and fellow South Texas Rival Rio Grande Valley who currently hold the final playoff spot in the Southern Conference.

In the North American Hockey League, the Wichita Falls Wildcats will return from the league Christmas Break with a road trip to South Division leading Topeka.

If the Wildcats will look to improve on a bad start to the season, as the Wildcats have just won 9 of 30 games and are in danger of missing the playoffs, just one year after the team came so close to upsetting the Topeka Roadrunners last year. And they have been one of the leagues biggest disappointments in the first half of the season.
