this season isnt really all that different from what we usually see in the course of 82 games... we always seem to have a stretch where we wonder if we are ever going to score another goal(I remember one year we had two goal in three games and both were scored by Smithson), we also usually have a stretch where we score a lot and then everyone thinks we can win 5-4 and forgets about defense, and stretches where we win games 2-1 or 1-0 or get points that we probably have no business getting but we do anyway and it all adds up to our usual 4-6 seed...
its just that in this compressed season every losing streak seems like the end of the seaon and every winning streak rockets us up the standings.
what is going to determine how this season goes is whether or not Erat, SK, Legwand and Fisher can play at something close to their historical levels and tide us through until Horns and Wilson come back
