Look, this is basically game 7 of an 8 (count 'em, 8) game road trip. The one stopover in Vancouver doesn't count (it is really part of a brutal road trip). The last 7 games were in 7 different cities. And after game 7 of an 8 different city in 8 games trip the canucks have 12 points, and lost two only because of a VERY good performance by Turco. And this is after the January to forget.
We're finding ways to win even when we're not on the top of our game. Better to do that than find ways to lose while playing not that bad (see: January, at times).
The scary part is the teams and schedule in March and April is easier. When the going is easier we tend to fold...
