Phase 4: Continue playing sloppy and be unable to string together any winning streaks the rest of the season because of it

Because of the lockout we skipped phases 1 and 2 and started in phase 3.

Of course the current meme is to now pretend that these past 7 games are the only ones where the Devils have looked sloppy at all when in reality they've been sloppy all season long and you can count the number of periods where they played well for an entire 20 minutes on one hand.
This is what I've been saying. Had some great wins, but we also had a good PP, a more than efficient PK, and outstanding goaltending.

Now we have a dried up PP, the team doesn't even know what a PK is anymore, and some not very good goaltending these last two games.
