I'd still be highly surprised to see us make the playoffs, but at least it's some part of the conversation. These games aren't yet throwaways
The Jackets are learning the rules. One rule I mention a lot. If you are going to lose a game, do it in OT. If the Jackets hadn't started off so poor, they would have the recipe for what they need to get into the playoffs. With so many road games coming up, they aren't really in the conversation yet. In order to get there, they would need to learn how to win on the road. We can just pick up points in most games on the road. They have to win on the road.
No evidence to support, yet, they have learned that lesson.
The reality is, right now, we are probably 15th in the West. 2 points up with other teams with 3 games in hand? Odds are good that it doesn't hold up.
