The main difference is in the goaltending.

Last year, our team save% was .914, 9th best in hockey. This year, our team save% is .882, 2nd worst in hockey and worst in the Eastern Conference.
i agree - we were not good defensively last year. goaltending saved our bacon. if not for goaltending and the great start by the top line, we'd look like... well, just like we do this year! pretty pathetic.
