I'm really thinking that our "special" teams is maybe the key reason we're doing so badly.

Our 5v5 for/against is 1.30. Chicago managed to finish 9 games without a single regulation loss having just slightly less at 1.27. So ES is not a big issue for us at all. Could be better, could be worse.

Over 9 games, we have spent 23% of the time on the "power" play or killing one. Almost a minute of every 4. I'm sorry but that seems incredibly stupid to me. I enjoy 5v5 hockey. I want more 5v5 hockey. But more importantly, the Red Wings have to figure out how to not be complete failures at anything other than 5v5 hockey. Of all the things you can nitpick about this team, that is the thing that is killing us the most.
