They've gotta turn it around now cause it's getting bad. I don't think we can lose over 30 games, and expect to make it into the playoffs with how tight things are looking to be this season. At least not over 30 regulation losses. It's not too late to turn it around yet. We were on pace to maybe get a 6th-8th seed spot before this streak started to happen.

It's okay to lose, but not because of shorthanded goals like this. This is uncalled for. No reason this should be happening. Pretty sure Washington, and one other team that's over in the Western Conference has 4 shorthanded goals against. I forgot the other team. That was as of earlier this evening. Those are the highest next to us. Don't know what Chico was talking about saying the Devils were tied in shorthanded goals given up before last nights. Maybe last week we have.

We've lost 3 of the last 7 games due to shorthanded goals, and that was the difference in this 3. 3 of the last 7 games I mean. I'm not even talking about 3 of the last 7 losses. I'm talking games.

We lost 2 of the last 3 to sloppy play, and gave up more than one shorthanded chance last night, and a few in Minnesota which never came to be.

This team was the best team in the NHL the second half of last season. Mostly the same team. Minus Rolston, Anssi Salmella, Jacob Josefson, and the biggest loss Zajac. And we are plus Zach Parise, Adam Henrique, and Petr Sykora, Bryce Salvador, and the 4th overall pick Defenceman Adam Larsson, and a few others less significant like 4th liners.

Nick Palmieri was great last season don't know what happened. Henrique makes up for Josefson, Sykora makes up for Rolston, because Rolston wasn't really playing any better, Larsson, and Salvador at least combined should make up for Salmella. Parise should make up for Zajac right now, but really Zajac plays better D.

Zharkov played more games last year too right?

SNAP OUT OF IT! I have to blame coaching to an extent. They're trying things that don't work.

Also stop playing Kovy for 25+ minutes a night! What's the point? That opens him up to even more criticism!
