I hate comments like this.

Just because it's one game doesn't mean that some of our negative comments are meaningless.

I remember posters saying the same thing after those back to back losses to the Isles last year. Those losses directly led to finishing 4th and facing Philly, instead of 1st and facing Ott. Philly was the team in the East that had the best chance of beating us and we could have avoided them win one more win throughout the season. Who knows what would have happened if the Pens had finished first last year, but I can pretty confidently say that they would have made it past the first round.

Losses are especially costly in a shortened season.
