Yep... though the game was still bad.

They are pretty much a cusp playoff team (in terms of team makeup) who take too many penalties, and have an insanely low shot% so far... like it pretty much has to improve 1.5-2.5% over the year. The goaltending and above average D is making up for that so far though.

The first 8 games were the killers really though.

And they missed Masons puck handling... he helps so much with breakouts and disrupting forecheckers. Like having an extra D.
