everyone goes through tough streaks, the Red Wings went through a slump themselves. During the February time which you say was so awful, their schedule went like this.

Lost by 1 in a shootout to the Pens
lost by 1 to the nuclear hot Devils
lost by 2 to the Habs including an empty netter
lost to Detroit by 1
lost to the Thrashers by 1
beat Pittsburgh and the Kings
once again lost to the nuclear hot Devils by 1
Lost to the Flyers by 2 including an empty netter
beat Washington and Carolina
then lost to the Bolts by 1

so the month looks awful at 4-8-1

but thats where all those bad bounces come in, how many of those games were lost by a puck going into our own net by us? Id wager almost half of them, we can go check out the scoresheets and such but i remember this team being just unbelievably unlucky during that time.

Could the season have been lost because of February? I suppose, but the fact is, this team actually played really close hockey against red hot teams and teams that were way up there in teh standings, they also were in the playoff picture just 1 month ago, played .700 hockey, and have actually lost ground. No matter how you slice it, it's tough to actually expect even more. *shrugs*
