Yes, you can pull out plenty of stats that make them look bad too. But the fact of the matter is that they dug themselves out of a deep hole and have been playing good hockey overall for a while now. Are they a stanley cup contender? No, but they're in a better place than thought back in November.

Relax a little, look at the bigger picture. Let them finish the season at least before you cast them off as failures.
It's just hard accepting that loss, it's going to take time to get over that. I wish they played again tonight. I mean they DOMINATED that game, but squandered so many chances to make it a blowout, and then collapsed. That's just unacceptable, you want the team to have a killer instinct this time of year.
