But we already blew half the points from the first half and if we only get half the points in the second half we don't have half a chance.
Why not? We blew half the points in the first half like you said, and we are still in the hunt. As long as we don't do worse it will come down to the wire. I'm not saying it is a lock that the Flyers make the playoffs, but it's not like we are in dead last on a 15 game losing streak. They just got 9 out of a possible 12 points on a long road trip, why complain? They weren't going to go 82-0 and they won't go 41-0 in the second half, but they just have to keep their heads above water and make it to the playoffs. If you are in 1-8 at the end of the season, that's all that matters. No one cares where you finished in the regular season if you make the playoffs. It's a new season come mid-April as long as you are in the top eight. This team has begun to turn it around and I am confident it will continue, despite this terrible, ridiculous, damning 0-1-1 record in the last two games.
