Why are we ****ty, Dad? Because we have to chase the entire Western Conference.

Not- but why the hell did we win more games last year while getting outplayed more often than this year?
This team just has a knack for doing the wrong thing at the wrong time.
Get an odd man rush: miss and give up a goal on an opposition odd-man rush.
Score a big goal to take the lead or tie the game: take endless minor penalties and blow the game.
Get a powerplay in crunch time: can't score or even get a prime scoring opportunity
Get a big save from the goalie: further defensive breakdowns leading to a goal shortly after anyway
And the list goes on.
I've been saying this for a good chunk of this year. Anytime they do something positive they follow it up with something grossly negative.
The Phoenix and first Toronto games are prime examples.
