If you count a shootout win as a win, then count a shootout loss as a loss. 7-1-3 is 7-4.
Even if you want to use the 7-4, that's a .636 win percentage and good for 52 wins over the entire season. What's wrong with that?

I don't even think our record is indicative of how well we've been playing. All four of those losses were one goal games and in three (Winnipeg, Colorado, Columbus) the opposing goaltender was the first star of the game. Versus the Sharks Niemi was the 2nd star. Goaltenders have had to stand on their heads for teams to beat us, by and large.
