Here's the breakdown of goals the last 12 games:

Total: 29 goals (2.41 per game)
Even Strength: 14
PPG: 13
SHG: 1
EN: 1

That's a really good total even strength. The PK is AWFUL so far. It doesn't help that alot of those penalties are dumb ones.
The only problem 5 on 5 with the defense is the break out game. It has been subpar during this slump, but it was good when we were winning so I think they are capable.
