Every team has blow outs like that. Take away any of the others 5 biggest wins and their stats look worse, too.
Ok, so take out the 5 biggest wins and the five biggest losses and you'll find out more about teams. Since teams can have bad games or bad luck, eliminating these kind of games will help you find out how a team has played the whole year. those big wins and losses are "aberration" games.
Since we know they are a -7 without those big wins, lets see what happens when we take away the bad losses. 5-1 loss to Colorado is the biggest loss. Four other three goal losses, -7 + 16 = +9. I'm sure those other teams in the playoffs (Tampa, Montreal, Buffalo, Canes) are around that number if you take out the top 5 big wins and top five big losses. (Buffalo -2, Canes -7, Habs +4, Lightning +3) Sure that's not +9, but having a couple more 2 goal wins over 1 goal wins isn't that important,
To stay on topic, I feel we have a shot tonight, even though the Sharks have a lot of depth. If we can get a forecheck going, there defense isn't great at moving the puck up the ice.
What is the reasoning behind the Gilroy love over Eminger ? What the heck did Eminger do wrong ?
The question on everyone's mind. WTF has Gilroy done to deserve to play every game ? Clearly Eminger took Torts' daughter out for a nice steak dinner and never called her the next day, as a result he's been banished to the press box.
