Just to add, we've only scored 5 or more goals on 1 occasion in 28 games. So much for this much-heralded scoring depth.

The point of having scoring depth isn't to score 100 goals a game. You want depth so that you have threats on every line and if one or two lines are slumping, your third line can step up and be just as dangerous as a first line.

True indeed, but it'd be nice to be on the right end of a blow-out sometime soon.

We've lost 12 out of the last 21 games. We've scored 3 or less goals in 15 of them. We've let a comfortable lead at the top of the conference slip and it will be eradicated entirely by this time tomorrow.

Despite all this, nobody seems to be that concerned. We hear the same crap about what they need to do but nobody is doing it. Our captain is anonymous, Briere hasn't been seen for weeks, our agitators aren't agitating and our defensemen aren't defending.

The play-offs are around the corner and we're not improving by one iota. This presumption that we'll instantly turn it around like last season is dangerous, it was an anomaly last year and it's no given thing that it will be repeated.

Momentum is king.
Nobody seems to be concerned? Have you been reading the boards, say....the past 2 months?

Just like we could use a shutout every once in a while.

Im frusterated but not concerned.... we have never really been a "regular season" team..... if we lose the first two games of the first round, then I will panic

Magic numbers:

4 to stay in front of Pens
5 ... Bruins
7 ... Caps

Assuming said teams win all of their remaining games.

Honestly I would love to be the 3 seed and play the Habs in the first round. We own them.
