Why is this??

St. Louis always seems to have trouble against Detroit. Detroit always seems to have trouble against Nashville. Nashville always seems to have trouble against St. Louis. What the hell is wrong with this picture??

Lets have a round robin involving those 3 teams in each case, it'd probably be pretty interesting.

Some teams just have other teams numbers. As a Kings fan, we usually have trouble with Columbus, this year was the first time we ever won a game in Florida.

Also Minnesota always gives Vancouver fits, Vancouver beats Edmonton most of the time, and Edmonton owns Minnesota.

some teams style of play is better suited playing against another particular style of play.

As a detroit fan, I will tell you this: nothing is wrong with this picture, at least not until Nashville makes the playoffs.

Add Chicago to that list for the Blues they have beat us twice this year. As for the Answer particularly with the Hawks I dont know because in both games this year they didnt do anything special. We just had two god aweful efforts where we would have had trouble beating anyone.

As for the Blues vs Detriot thing, as much as I hate to give them credit most of the time they have beat us simply because they have had a very good team.

Before this season, Calgary beats every elite team and loses to every expansion-esque team.

icarus,
exactly why calgary is doing better - they're no longer playing to the competition level! fact is, most teams are mediocre.

as to why this three-team thing happens, check out "The History of War in the Western World" by uh, some dead smart guy. light infantry -- heavy infantry -- cavalry...

although less so this year, Chicago usually owns Detroit during the regular season, no matter how bad our team is.
