if we are going to be a playoff team

it will be based on goals against, not goals for. It was a historic fluke to be 2nd in gaa and not make the playoffs. Never happened before, never will happen again.

This year, I can see mact really focussing on goals against. In the last two games, the oil have allowed 2 goals. You can bet that mact loves that even more than two 6-5 wins.

But they can't win games in their end of the rink either. Far to many times over the last 2 years have they had the lead by 1 or 2 goals going into the third period and it would be the kiss of death. They would end up playing the checking line for the majority of the period and they couldn't get the puck out without icing it. When the other team doesn't have to worry about defending their zone, they would just keep sending their scoring lines out to wear the boys out.

It actually doesn't matter how we get the W's. The semi-aggressive style we played tonight is what we need to do on the road. There was certainly some jump out there.
