If we're lucky in the 2-ish range, right, that's what we're looking for?

Hmmmm....

I guess there's some logic in that. I just think there will be a new Prime Minister before we win in Dallas again...

I would be happy with the results of the road trip if we could win that game.

5-4 would be nice. And i totally think we can do it i'm an optimist
We could fall out of the playoff picture in this road trip i think we need atleast half the possible points so 9 points
The NSH and STL games will be the second half of a back to back for us. We play 6 games in 9 days
So Tell the other teams GOML

5-2-2 I have a feeling Eberle is finding his stride. And we seem to always give it to Chicago. Everyone I work with including my mom are down at a tool expo in Dallas this week so they might be going to the game on Thursday. Sucks that I just started working there a few weeks ago or else I'd be down there too.

3-6, hopefully some OTL's with those 6. Maybe 7-8 points there. By the end of this we'll be 13th/14th and more than 3-4 points away from 8th.

Probably the most realistic prediction so far, unfortunately.

Meant to click on 5-7 points.

I think they get lucky with an O/T win against the Hawks and a win against Colorado and the Bluejackets.
Throw in an OT loss in one of the other games and that should do it.

I expect they will be a good 6 points out of a playoff spot at the end of the road trip.

I'm predicting an optimistic SHOCKER of a road trip. Dunno why. Everyone gets an Oscar!

Chicago W
Dallas L
St. Louis W
Minnesota W
Columbus W
Detroit W
Nashville W
Chicago L
Colorado OTL

That's right. 6-2-1. No rational basis for it. None in the slightest. I'm allowed to do that, right?
