Multiple goal deficits

First of all, the good news. The Rangers have been down by more than 1 goal by my count only 13 times this year (I don't count the empty net against the Islanders). Second, the bad news. We won only 1 game (the winter classic) in the scenario. Most of the time we don't even make it close, with our 2nd 4-2 loss to Toronto and I guess the Chicago games being the only exceptions. Last year we seemed to do it relatively often (in more attempts though). By my count Philly has at least 3 and 2 of them are 3 goal deficits. They almost came back from a 4 goal deficit against Winnipeg, even made it very interesting against New Jersey when they were down 6-0 in the 3rd, losing 6-4. This team has 4 wins when trailing after 2, but fall behind by more than 1 and stick a fork in them. I don't know if it's the offense or what, but this to me is disconcerting.
