it doesn't excuse the losses-- edmonton was specifically targeted by the flames and lost once, but then came back to destroy them-- but it partially explains them.
I think that Philadelphia, Toronto, and Carolina all built themselves to beat New Jersey, but only Carolina succeeded and it took several tries.
(By the time Philly beat NJ in 2004, they didn't have Scott Stevens, so it wasn't the same).
