Last night, down 1 goal in 1st and us on the Power Play, Dubinsky takes cross check penalty and then pulls in another 2 mins for unsportsmanlike. In both cases, the other team gets another goal to go up 2 on us.

On the good side, we have the same number of points (3) as LAK and NYR COMBINED. They are 1-5-1 combined, we are 1-2-1. Although I think the chance of NYR not making the playoffs is about as good as us making the playoffs, this short season doesn't leave too much room for error. LAK barely made playoffs last year, so not as farfetched to see them miss. It'd be nice to have some good draft picks and 2-3 chances at #1 overall.
Maybe we'll land the 1st and 2nd pick That would be a spectacle.

Good post and I agree about the penalties and frustration taking its toll. They did play better last night imo, but obviously not well enough. Bob lettling a softie in ealry doesn't help. A strong effort Sat night could yield 2 points.
