So, after four games, we're averaging 1.5 goals per game, the worst number in the Western Conference and the third-worst number in the league (Philadelphia and Buffalo are worse). We have the worst goal differential in the West at -7 (Edmonton is next with a -4 through 3 games). Our scoring defense (3.25 GA/G) ranks last in the division, 12th out of 14 in the West, and 24th in the league. Our power play is 19th with the 9th-most power play time in the league; our penalty kill is 26th with the 6th-most shorthanded time in the NHL. We're one of two teams that has yet to score first in a game; the other team is Dallas, which has only played two games. Oh, and Pekka Rinne's save percentage is .891.

Early returns don't win an election, but the Preds' early returns look really nasty. We have a 7-game road swing starting at the end of the month. We need to start gaining traction before then, or we could be in real trouble.
