Every team has looked sloppy, we played well in our system and got the job done. Nabakov was the difference between a blow out.
Exactly. It wasn't the prettiest start, but watching games around the league... I can think of 2 or 3 teams of the now 27 that have played that have looked "good" by any means.

Nobody (except the rookies who have been playing all year) seems to know what to do in front of either net. Losing pucks in scrambles in the offensive zone and blowing coverage completely in front of your own net. It's happening everywhere.

Obviously this can't continue against an 0-2 Flyers team and expect to win. But, a solid coaching staff is on board. They were watching the same game we did and they'll adjust accordingly.
