The GF/GA differential is also a bit alarming. The team was a collective +40 over the first 41 games. The team is only a collective +4 over the second 39 games. It's giving up way more goals (106 to 94), while scoring a lot less (134 to 110). IMO, that highlights how much this team has struggled during the second half of the season.
Obviously we've been worse in the second half and the numbers reflect it. I'm just surprised that the second half numbers are as good as they are. This has been a capital b Bad team for the last few months.
