He said that the team has been playing terribly in some terrible circumstances and they may turn it around as soon as next game.

Dismiss it as "coachspeak" if you want, but I put more stock into the thoughts of an NHL coach over those of an internet group that is partial to knee-jerk pessimism.
In my opinion that is a textbook example of making sure your team doesn't overlook an opponent.
