If that's ugly, I'll take ugly like that all year
If we had opened the season with 2 regulation wins instead of SOL's, then I think we would have a different perspective right now.

The ugly part has been goal scoring...which, until tonight, was dreadful.

I agree that a simple look at the standings and who we played/beat points to a successful road trip...but there were lots and lots of defensive breakdowns, offensive rustiness, Pekka-rustiness, and some flat out poor play.

But in the end, they don't award playoff position over style points. All will be forgiven if the Preds can right the ship at home.
