They simply must tighten up defensively. Be in position to at least get a point during 3rd periods. When/if NYR go on a hot streak later, the teams ahead of them will be picking up loser points here and there. They absolutely have to start doing the same immediately.
I agree but we're in the midst of the hardest part of our schedule by far. Once we're a little more comfortable with the new system and playing at home, points will be far easier to come by. It would have been awesome to do more in this stretch but this will hardly cripple us.

If we still aren't winning come New Years then you go out and try to make something happen via trade or consider rebuilding completely.
