With obvious exceptions, goal-scoring hasn't been our problem.
Actually, three of those games, the other team scored no more than 2 goals. Vancouver had 4 goals but it's hard to argue that it's the D's fault for giving up 5-3 goals. Atlanta had 4 and yes it was the D's fault. L.A. had 3 and yes it was a the D's fault. But when St. Louis scores 1 goal and wins; Dallas scores one goal and ties; and Chicago scores two goals (1 EN) and wins, something is up. This 'obvious exception' constitutes 50% of the games in question.
