As far as being relieved in beating our arch-rivals, yeah, I won't feel much better until we can beat their A-game. But as far as self-assessment, I think the bad calls and last night's goal differential evens it out enough to say we're officially out of our slide.
Going back to the rivalry in particular, some people saying we need to be able to beat them solidly and put up a dominating defensive effort against them on a regular basis, but I'm not sure I agree. No teams will be able to do that because of the kind of game the penguins play. An 11 goal game is Pittsburgh hockey.
