We are a very young team. Our second D pairing averages 21 years old and less than a year of NHL experience. Our first line has two 25 and under players, ditto with our third line. With youth comes certain levels of inconsistency. We are going to play bad games, games where our determination and focus is not there. We aren't likely to win those games.

I agree, though one could argue that we played pretty poorly in our first two games in some elements and still came away with 2 wins.
