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.
I hear ya, but as you said, style points don't matter, and I still say you can look at the fact that we got these kinds of results while not playing our best as a positive, not a negative.

And while there is no doubt the offense has struggled big time, I don't think anything negative can be said about the defense on the trip- we allowed 13 goals in 7 games against some great teams. You cannot ask for any more than that......
