So an extra goal a game takes them to ~2.6GPG and ~-2 GD. With those numbers it would be expected to be in the 7-9 range in the conference... which is right where most of us thought they would be before the year.
Hooray for numbers! Quantifying human sadness since the dawn of civilization.

Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
