Overall in this series Anaheim was the better team in the 3 games with the Coyotes in the 1st 2 playing just good enough to to get it to a shootout.
A sign that the etam must be better if they want to get back to the WCf again and more.
We do need to be better if we want to have a snowball's chance in hell.
Right now I see us as a likely shot for the playoffs, but if we get on a bad streak we might miss out on them. Still though, we should get in, but I don't see us getting home ice advantage in the first round in any way.
We'd be the underdogs in just about any playoff series but if we can get it together like we did last season we could make another deep playoff run. It'll be interesting to see (if you'd asked me the same question 14 games ago I'd have predicted us to finish like 12th or so).
