If we do miss the playoffs, there is one reason why- our awful road play

Was just looking at some stats and numbers, and it is pretty unbelievable the difference in our play at home vs. the road this season:

Home:
9-2-4 +17 goal differential 2.87 G/G 1.73 GA/G

Road:
5-11-2 -19 goal differential 2.11 G/G 3.17 GA/G

Last 10 road games:
1-9-0 -18 goal differential 2.40 G/G 4.20 GA/G

Those are some ridiculous splits. If we dont make the playoffs its no big mystery why- we were horrible on the road. Its hard to comprehend a team like ours giving up over 4 goals per game over the last 10 road games.

It really makes it hard not to think of what might have been- if we had just won 2 or 3 of the road debacles this year like we should have (such as the Colorado offside call game or the Edmonton SK game), we would be sitting pretty.

If we had won 2 of them, we would be 16-11-6/38 pts and solidly in the playoffs. Win 3 of them and wed be 17-10-6/40 pts and in the hunt for home ice.

Good news is we only have 6 road games left- bad news is only 15 games overall left, which means we dont have time to dig ourselves out of the hole our road play dug for us

Oh well
