Welcome to the first installment of the Pacific Division Playback, a weekly feature where we take a look back at what went down in the Pacific Division over the last week. For today’s post we look at the Pacific Division action between January 5th and January 11th, the first full week of 2014.

In the table above you can the standings in the division as of the 11th. In the weeks that follow we will track the movements of each team. At the moment the Anaheim Ducks have been the creme of the crop both in the Division and the entire NHL, sitting atop the Pacific with 73 points. San Jose and Los Angeles round out the top three and the three guaranteed playoff spots in the Pacific. However, Vancouver is not far behind in fourth place just two points out of third and five points out of second.

The Phoenix Coyotes sit in no mans land, not quite in playoff contention and not quite at the bottom of the barrel, where the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers have sat for much of the season.

Now lets take a team by team look at how the last week of play panned out.
