I agree that play in our own end is one of the bigger problems, though. Of course, it's also a pretty standard problem in the first 10 games of a season with 4 completely new forward lines that also keep needing to fill in around injuries. I think they're managing decently well, considering.
I was definitely speaking from my memory of the game, getting frustrated with the Habs playing poorly in our own end. It seemed like they gave up the puck too often, but I think they just looked sloppy and lost a lot of puck battles. That number probably felt like it was more to me.

I agree that they're managing well considering all the injuries, but it was definitely an issue against Nashville and in a couple other games as well, in my opinion.
