When you got the elite players on a line supported by an elite D you should be able to hold your own in the league. At some point they have to.
For the first 3 games of the season the Gagner line was getting the tough matchups. Thats how the season started. Check back to the first Vancouver game and the first SJ game and you see that.
The first line is getting the 5 star chances on most nights. They're in a funk.
I think RNH's shoulder hasn't been right since before Christmas, and that threw that line off just enough to screw up all their confidence, now they're doing stupid uncharacteristic things because they get down on themselves when they're not scoring.
Which is what you'd expect from kids.
