i agree that they are only challenging for a playoff spot because of the shortened season though... if this was a full season, we wouldn't have been challenging by the trade deadline (as it appears we might be this season)
Before this little 3-0-2 run, we were on pace for 68 points.

That's good for a tie at 29th last season and 30th the season before that.

I don't see a team that was 8-11-5 managing to keep going at a point per game pace.
