They just lost 2 games on the road, each by one goal.

The Carolina game was the 3rd game in 4 nights coming off another 3 games in 4 nights right before that and the Canes had been sitting at home for a week having only played 1 game prior. Lots of chances were generated but there was no puck luck at all. They lost, could have gone either way.

The Habs game? Again, a bit of bad luck and a catastrophic bad call but otherwise they were in the game and it totally could have gone the other way.

There are no bad teams in the NHL anymore, stop thinking your team should win every night and dump all over them when they go on a 2 game losing "streak" on the road. Spezza being out hurts but this team is very deep in forwards and can still compete with anyone. We all knew the the back end was going to have its issues this year with Cowen out and with Gonchar recovering from the flu that's half the top 4 missing.

This team is very good but even that might not be enough to make the playoffs, this needs to be understood. I think they will but anything can happen, especially in a short season.
