Our goal differential also went from -8 to +4. The only two teams in the league to finish with positive goal differentials and not make the playoffs were us and St. Louis, who finished 9th in the West. Only Ottawa and Montreal had negative goal differentials and made the playoffs. In sports, luck is an x-factor that can change everything. I think we were a tad unlucky to finish out of the playoffs. I'm not saying that we were a threat to win the championship but we were a playoff caliber team, for the most part. If we can make another 12 goal improvement in goal differential, we'll probably be a 4-6 seed.

It might be counter intuitive but a hockey team could be better than the year before, while falling in the standings.
