They were a decent team that had a great run.
The Calder cup team really benefited with the NHL call downs and the breaks went one way as well as the stars somehow aligned. Lehner also found his groove. It probably shouldn't have happened but it did so no one is complaining.
My big fear is that when the big boys get called up is there going to be enough scoring. That was the trouble last year. Many games were lost by one goal.
