Just like in the NHL, there are few games left in the AHL season. First place has not been sewn up yet. When I last looked at the standings, the Texas Stars (Dallas affiliate) had caught up to the Manchester Monarchs (LA Kings affiliate) who had been in first place. It looks like Texas may pull ahead. They currently have a one point lead and one game in hand. They have five games remaining to play this season and Manchester has four. Texas is extremely hot. They are on a nine game winning streak.
Texas is the team of the AHL's top scorer Travis Morin. They are the second highest scoring team in the league this season and are sixth in goals against. That makes them a well-rounded team but one that is better offensively than defensively. Any team as hot as Texas who has had as strong a season as they have will be a tough opponent for anyone in the playoffs and would have to be considered the favorite.
