Goals against

I was checking out the standings when I looked at the Coyotes goals against number. I did not think it was that high, but we are 27th in the league. Only Atlanta (84GA in 29GP), Washington (85GA in 27GP), and Pittsburgh (94GA in 27GP) are behind the Coyotes. Chicago (81GA in 28GP) is also tied with the Coyotes. So, how did these 81 get scored?

ES 5 on 5- 44 (ranks 20th in the league)
PP 5 on 4- 4 (24th in the league)
ES 4 on 4- 3 (17th in the league)
SH 3 on 4- 2 (5 teams tied for last)
SH 3 on 5- 1 (8th in the league)
Empty netter- 1 (14 teams tied for second)
SH 4 on 5- 26 (29th in the league)

Is discipline still a problem like Wayne and Co. talked about this summer? If so, who are the culprits? Or is the PK that bad?

And what do all those teams at the bottom have in common? A poor defense, this is a glaring hole on the team, but oddly enough I like our defense, but they are not doing their job evidently. Who would you want moved besides Ference, which I don't think we should give up on so quickly. We need to improve, but I'm not sure who get's dumped for the upgrades.

That was somewhat confusing, but it was a mea culpa. I thought we had 26 shorthanded goals against :eek:
Anyway, 26 PP goals against is pretty bad too.
