  1. They have actually outshot their opponents in the first period of most of their games so far but still end up down a couple of goals after the first. Goaltending lets them down early and they can’t recover, 34 is decent but too small, 30 should be in house league and 29 disappeared. A couple of key acquisitions could help them to a 12 win season.
